From the Editor ... After a record-breaking hot summer, the weather is becoming the refreshingly balmy autumn and soon a mild winter - a beautiful time of year to visit Bundaberg. The Campervan Motorhome Club of Australia has chosen Bundaberg as the location for this year’s RV Rally in October, attracting even more visitors to our popular region, saying they look forward to exploring the many attractions, and will no doubt spread the word that Bundy is the place to holiday, or live, as indeed more families are choosing – the lifestyle is second to none. We have some fabulous prizes, to give away to a lucky reader and a friend to enjoy later this year or early 2018 during Turtle Season – entry to some of our best attractions, accommodation, dinner, and tickets to see the turtles either laying, or hatching. (see details page 29). Here we announce
the winner of our competition to win a whale watching holiday on Fraser Island. Coastline Newspapers continue to promote Bundaberg and the Southern Great Barrier Reef as well as the rest of the state, in our Tourist Queensland publication which was delivered as a supplement in New Zealand’s Auckland Herald. We hope you enjoy your visit to our region and return again in the near future. Michael McRae, Managing Editor Coastline Newspaper Group. Phone 07 4153 1133 firstname.lastname@example.org
ON THE COVER The Reef is better in the waters off Bundaberg and central Queensland, rivaling the far-north – the Southern Great Barrier Reef is healthier and more beautiful and according to tourism operators, it’s time to spread the word to the world. The coral and waters around the southern end of the reef – including Lady Musgrave and Lady Elliot Islands are pristine – and relatively undamaged by coral bleaching. You’re in the right region to explore the Great Barrier Reef – enjoy!

MAYOR’S MESSAGE Bundaberg Regional Council Mayor Cr Jack Dempsey Welcome to the Bundaberg Region. We hope the pages of the Bundy Book whet your appetite to fully explore the magnificent diversity our region has to offer. The “welcome” mat is always out to new and returning visitors. The region is based on the city of Bundaberg with the rural centres of Childers and Gin Gin contributing to the regional population which is approaching 100,000. Marketed as the ideal place to Live, Work, Invest and Play the Bundaberg Region is 6400 square kilometres of surprising landscapes – it is the region where the coastline meets the country. The Bundaberg Region is internationally known for its iconic people, places and products. Pioneering aviator Bert Hinkler who in 1928 became the first pilot to fly solo from England to Australia, magnificent Mon Repos beach where nesting sea turtles return each year to the delight of thousands of visitors and the famous Bundaberg Rum which has won acclaim as arguably the smoothest drinking rum in the world represent just some of the captivating stories associated with the Bundaberg Region. The region has a strong connection to water with our pristine beaches from the white sands of Woodgate Beach through to the golden sands of Moore Park Beach offering safe swimming and waterways where water sports, fishing and crabbing are popular pursuits. If your taste extends to locally produced beverages there is so much more to offer in the region than our superb Bundaberg Rum. Three

boutique wineries can be found in Childers while Bundaberg is home to the Bargara Brewing Co with its range of craft beers. Bundaberg Brewing Co produces the sensational tasting and internationally marketed Bundaberg Ginger Beer. Take a tour through the “Big Barrel” and see the process of making ginger beer and, better still, enjoy a taste test! An incredibly well presented zoo on the banks of the Burnett River coupled with riverside walkways and shady parks and gardens add to the magic Mother Nature has bestowed on our region. A highlight attraction are the glorious Botanic Gardens which is a sublime location boasting numerous walkways, incredible foliage and quaint areas including Chinese and Japanese gardens. The Gardens also provide a memorable steam locomotive experience on Sunday mornings courtesy of the Australian Sugar Cane Railway enthusiasts. **** The $32 million Multiplex facility is the new home to the Bundaberg PCYC and is a facility that will cater to the current and future needs of our expanding community. Sport, recreation, child minding and community interaction are all covered with this superb new structure. Commencing around June each year the district merges into sugar cane harvesting season. Viewing the spectacle of a cane fire, watching harvesters in action and seeing locomotives hauling cane to the local mills is part and parcel of an agricultural industry that is the economic heartbeat of the region. **** The Port of Bundaberg is an expanding location set to be a major economic driver for the region with the $70 million Knauf plasterboard factory currently under construction. The port is the current location for the ex-HMAS Tobruk which is being prepared for scuttling as a dive wreck in the waters off Bundaberg and the vessel can be viewed dockside at the port. If you are lucky enough to visit during one of our many festivals you are in for an unequalled treat. July is a great month for festivals locally with Winterfeast and Bundy Flavours food fair kicking off the month by showcasing the sensational array of fresh fruit and vegetables produced right here in the salad bowl of Queensland. The iconic Childers Festival hosting crowds in excess of 40,000 on the national highway at Childers concludes a very busy month. Enjoy everything Bundaberg and our outlying communities have to offer. History and heritage are fondly observed within our region. We are proud of where we have come from and excited at where we are heading. It’s a pleasure to welcome you to our community.

Walk through history Stroll leisurely around the CBD and notice these brilliant old buildings, some heritage-listed and been standing since long before Bundaberg was declared a city just over 100 years ago. The Old Cran Home – corner Bourbong and Hope Streets West Bundaberg, built 1894 for Robert Cran who established the Millaquin Sugar Mill. It has five bedrooms, ballroom, morning room, two lounge rooms, three bathrooms, formal dining, fireplaces, bay windows, chandeliers and ceiling roses, high ceilings, hoop pine floors, red cedar joinery and double terracotta chimney pots. Payne, Butler & Lang Solicitors office is Qunaba House on the corner of Targo and Quay Streets. Erected in 1887, it’s our oldest commercial building, originally the Queensland National Bank. The name was also used for the Qunaba Sugar Mill when it was initially operated by the bank at Mon Repos.
The Old Bundy Tavern is on the site of one of Bundaberg's earliest public houses - the Custom House Hotel. The allotment was originally sold at Bundy’s first auction in May 1870 for
£11. It was destroyed by fire in 1915 , rebuilt and renamed Hotel Bundaberg in 1918, then The Old Bundy Tavern in 1991. Post Office – the tower’s exterior has remained virtually unchanged since the opening in 1890. The ground floor features wonderful pillars and arches; upper floor is dominated by colonial verandas and cast-iron balustrades. Soldiers War Memorial – a 7ft 6ins World War 1 Digger on a polished red granite column is sculptured from marble with the stone laid in 1920 by General Birdwood. Sir Charles Brand, originally from Bundaberg unveiled it in July 1921. Former Commercial Banking Company of Sydney – corner Maryborough and Bourbong Streets is of colonial design built in 1891. Wide verandas are embellished with cast iron lace balustrades, shingled roof, louvred wooden window shutters and the small building at the back was a horse stable. Linden Medical Centre in Barolin Street was built in 1913 as the residence of Dr Egmont Schmidt whose father emigrated from Berlin. It was named for Lindenstrasse, an avenue of linden trees. A time capsule was placed in a wall during building and it’s been a medical practice since 1975. Burnett Dentral Clinic was built around 1911 by O J Gruter of German/Swiss descent. It has distinctive pressed metal walls (both inside and out) and adornments on the original façade are Dental Blocks, an example of ancient Greek architecture. Holy Rosary Catholic Church, Bundaberg’s first opened on this site in 1875 with the design an adaptation of a Roman temple. The Anglican Church was built in English Gothic style with pointed arches, 34 metre tower with stonewalls, lichgate and wayside cross in keeping with the English custom. School of Arts in Bourbong Street is the oldest public building still standing, built in 1888/89.

Bundaberg’s Botanic Gardens Bert Hinkler – how he flew, where he lived More than a museum – an aviation adventure!

Step back in time Bundaberg Historical Museum will fascinate visitors with “how things used to be”. Beautifully maintained in the Botanic Gardens, this quaint haven of nostalgia has the famous Lucke Quads’ pram here, the

Grey Nomads If you are one of the growing army of grey nomads discovering Australia ... we welcome you to Bundaberg.
Childers RV Park RV travellers now have a new place to stay when they arrive in Childers with a 20-hour RV Park opened in March and expected to become very popular with the many grey nomads that visit the charming town. Bundaberg Mayor Jack Dempsey said the opening was part of a plan to create RV friendly parks across the region. Campervan and Motorhomes Australia CEO Richard Barwick said he was pleased that the Childers business community had actively pursued introducing the RV Park and looked forward to developing its RV Friendly Towns program further throughout the Bundaberg region.
RV Club plans Bundaberg Rally Campervan Motor Home Club of Australia (CMCA) plan a Bundaberg Rally from October 8 to 16, the longer rally decided to allow more time to explore the region’s attractions including the Rum Distillery. Rally Manager, Paul Scully stated in The Wanderer Magazine, that the surrounding area offers many opportunities both before and after the rally. “Towns such as Childers and Gin Gin will welcome our members.” Other activities include disc bowls, seminars, craft, indoor and outdoor trade and food court. The rally site is situated opposite the airport. Mr Scully encouraged RV members to make the most of the first rally held in Queensland in four years, saying “Whether you spent winter in the far north or you’re coming from the south or west, you’ll receive a warm Queensland welcome in Bundaberg.”

History of U3A University of the Third Age (U3A) is an international organisation, embodying the principles of life-long education and the pursuit of knowledge for its own sake, in an atmosphere of mutual learning and teaching. Third Age refers to the life period of active retirement, which follows the first age of childhood and formal education and the second age of working life, and which precedes the fourth age of dependence. The concept of U3A was developed in Toulouse in 1972, to bring older people into contact with academic programmes at the University. It spread rapidly throughout Europe, and the first Australian U3A was opened in Melbourne in 1984 and U3A Bundaberg established in 1988. All U3A branches are voluntary, self-help organisations; autonomous and democratic, with a management committee voted in by the membership. There are no employees, all workers including tutors are volunteers. Information on U3A Bundaberg, phone 41 54 1572, www.u3abundaberg.org.au

Bargara – beautiful one day, perfect the next Plenty of destinations are described that way, but in this case it happens to be true – so it had to be said! You may be mistaken for thinking you have flown into a tropical paradise upon arrival at Bargara. Palm trees line the foreshore, the Southern Great Barrier reef stretches out before you, and the climate is just like Hawaii - it's time to kick back and relax. This very family friendly seaside town just 13 kilometres from Bundaberg has heaps of parks, beaches, cafes, shops and activities to explore. You can swim all year round here, with several beaches stretching from Neilson's Park down to the pooch friendly Archie's Beach. The Esplanade is perfect for your morning or afternoon walk with six kilometres of paved pathway perfect for scooters, bikes, trikes or walkers. Say hi to the dogs (and their humans) that you see each day on their regular walk. The Basin is a protected swimming spot for young and old, best dipped in high tide, where you can take some bread down and feed the many fish that swim around your legs or pop some goggles on to take a peek. The Turtle Park offers shaded grass areas and a big playground in the shape of a turtle.

Turtles coming back in November Mon Repos Beach just 15 minutes from Bundaberg’s city centre has the largest concentration of nesting marine turtles on Australia’s eastern mainland and most significant loggerhead population in the South Pacific. During the day, entry to the conservation park is by the park access road or the boardwalk with visitors welcome to view the informative displays at the educational centre. There is no charge for daytime access. Rangers and volunteers do their utmost to ensure maximum comfort and minimum stress to the magnificent creatures, while allowing tourists to get up close and personal, to witness nature unfolding. Here’s the turtles’ own calendar of events
as they plan their annual return visit to Mon Repos Beach this year. November – nesting season starts with the first Saturday when nightly Turtle Tours begin. Bookings are essential by contacting the Information Centre 41 53 8888, www. bundabergregion.org/destinations/ natural-encounters/turtles December – nesting season reaches its peak with tours running except for December 24, 25, 31. January – Hatching Season starts as the little guys begin to appear and
Turtle Season sets new record "Tonight will tip us over the record from last year,” Bundaberg North Burnett Tourism general manager Katherine Mergard said in mid-March at the end of the 2016/2017 season. Last year had 30,222 visitors set foot on the sand to witness turtles nesting and hatching at Mon Repos Beach, with this year’s total expected to eclipse the record by more than 130 people.
scurry to the ocean with only one in 1000 surviving to come back to Mon Repos to breed. Even though the first babies are hatching, other mums are still laying their eggs in January. February – Hatching is in full swing. The tiny guys can be disoriented by bright lights with Bundy running the “Cut the Glow to Help Turtles Go” campaign so they head in the right direction, towards the sea. Late March – Turtle Time comes to a close.
SEE THE TURTLES &
STAY WITH US FOOD THAT
With records also broken for Bundaberg summer temperatures, turtle numbers suffered this season. There were more international visitors and pre-bookings than usual with the flood of bookings for December and January commencing in early September.

Burnett Heads Heritage Trail
Historian Marge Kidd has put huge efforts into researching Burnett Heads, resulting in the Burnett Heads Heritage Trail beginning at Oaks Beach. It is held on the fourth Sunday of each month from 9am to 12 with the iconic Lighthouse also open for visitors. This lighthouse was erected at South Head in 1873 and operational for 99 years until replaced by a taller tower. (Just around the corner, the unique 1930s Heritage Listed St John The Divine Anglican Church is also open from 9am to 12 on Sundays with visitors welcome.) It was relocated to Lighthouse Park in 1972 for preservation and stands as a lasting icon of the district. The Heritage Trail brochure is available at the Lighthouse when open and guides visitors who wish to go on the Heritage Trail walk which wends from the Historic Lighthouse to the current operational lighthouse, through the former Pilot Station Reserve and along the foreshore.
Burnett Heads/Port of Bundaberg is the “Gateway to the Southern Great Barrier Reef” – a relaxed coastal village located not far from Mon Repos Conservation Park and 17kms from the centre of Bundaberg. Burnett Heads has a variety of caravan parks, marinas, pubs and clubs mixed with waterfront dining and boutique shopping outlets. Burnett Heads’ great natural experiences include: • Turtle Trail Walk – enjoy this coastal stroll with great views of the coastline between Burnett Heads and Bargara. • Oaks Beach – safe swimming with weekend patrols over summer • Sharkies Beach – between north end of Mon Repos and Oaks Beach, secluded and enjoyed by locals for a leisurely stroll, swim, or snorkel. • Butchers Rocks – see basalt rock formations left behind after the volcanic Hummock eruption. Lava bubbles have left behind rock pools with soft corals and plenty of sea creatures; wet a line or snorkel in the right conditions. • Boat Harbour Sea Wall – land based fishing spot • Wallace Creek – great for kayaking, crabbing, fishing. At low tide nearby Duchess Rocks has a display of soft coral and it’s here where remnants of an ancient lava flow can be viewed. Snorkel or fish off the rock wall and then check out the marina to see how the yachties live.
