At the centre of the sugar cane country is Bundaberg, or “Bundy” as it is more fondly known. Bundaberg a progressive city of around 50,000, is 14 kilometres from the Coral Coast, where the townships of Elliott Heads, Innes Park, Bargara and Burnett Heads boast some of the most pristine beaches in Australia. To the south is Buxton, one of the last unspoilt fishing villages, and Woodgate with an abundance of wildlife in the surrounding national parks.

Childers, a National Trust town, is set on top of rolling hills of red soil, and the northern Town of 1770 is the first place that James Cook landed in Queensland. The Central and North Burnett provides a contrast to the coastal areas of the region with its rugged gorges, imposing mountain ranges and serene rural views. 15 National Parks preserve and provide a diverse range of experiences, from rugged mountain hikes, sleepy riverside campgrounds and the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef.
