Scuba diving in Bundaberg

Bundaberg, a city in the Australian state of Queensland, is located approximately 385km/239mi north of the state capital of Brisbane, which is about a 4-hour drive or a 45-minute flight from Bundaberg’s airport. Tourism is an important industry for Bundaberg, because the city is near the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef, and there are regular flights from Bundaberg to Lady Elliot Island. Another tourist attraction is the Mon Repos Conservation Park, located just 15km/9mi east of Bundaberg. Mon Repos Park supports the largest population of loggerhead turtles in Australia, and many people visit the park each year to watch nesting and hatchling turtles. Other local attractions and events include the Hinkler Hall of Aviation, Alexandra Park Zoo, Bundaberg Botanic Gardens, Barrel House, the Bundaberg International Air Show, the Woongarra Marine Park, reef tours, and fishing charters. The nearby beaches are popular with both locals and tourists. The famous Moore Park is north of the city, with 20km/12mi of golden-sand beaches. Bundaberg’s dive sites have beautiful reefs (some of which are artificial) and historical wrecks, and many dive sites are easily accessible from shore. Some of the most popular dive sites include Barolin Rocks, Cochrane Artificial Reef, Evan’s Patch, Keyhole, and Sharky Ledge.
