Life in Bundaberg

Do you want to start you day with a peaceful stroll along the beach, enjoying the fresh ocean air? The Wide Bay is arguably one of the most beautiful regions in Queensland, Australia and is known for its relaxed, family-friendly lifestyle. The Bundaberg and Coral Coast region is located approximately four hours’ drive, or a quick 50-minute flight, north of Brisbane and is the gateway to the Southern Great Barrier Reef. With an enviable year-round climate, moderate summer days give way to balmy tropical evenings. This sub-tropical region is where the coastline meets the country creating a unique and ideal family environment. It is the perfect base to explore the wider region, including Lady Musgrave, Lady Elliott and Fraser Islands, and the many hiking trails found in the rural hinterland. Bundaberg serves a population of about 100,000 people and is a vital regional business hub for Queensland, boasting excellent shopping, sporting, cultural and tourism facilities. The region is also home to one of the most important turtle breeding grounds in the world, at Mon Repos. A wide range of education and training facilities, services and programs can accommodate the needs of every level of student, from child care to university. Living in Bundaberg you can enjoy a short, traffic-free commute to work and free parking on and nearby hospital grounds.
