Itinerary

Today we depart for our short 4-day break to see the Turtle hatchlings at Mon Repos. From Brisbane, our first stop at the Eumundi Markets. Here we can stretch our legs and purchase lunch if you wish, whilst having a look through the market stalls. This afternoon we drive through to Bundaberg, and check into our motel for the next 3 nights.

(D) 3nts Econo Lodge Park Lane, Bundaberg

Note: This tour has walking distances along the sandy beach of up to 300mts to the turtles nest area.

This morning we’ll join the Bundy Belle for a cruise along the beautiful Burnett River. From aboard this fully restored classic river ferry,  we’ll enjoy the tranquility of the river’s lower reaches as we sit in comfort in the cabin or out on the deck. We have some time to purchase lunch before we visit Bundaberg Barrel Brewed Drinks.  We take a look at the True Brew Experience Tour, which has interactive touch screens showing us how the ginger root is transformed into the delicious Ginger Beer produced.  We have a chance to sample some of their 14 flavours and of course there will be time to make purchases of our favourites before we head back to the motel in time for dinner before our Turtle viewing

This evening, we will be visiting the Mon Repos Turtle Centre. Mon Repos is a very special place; it supports the largest concentration of nesting marine turtles on the eastern coast. Here we can learn about the Mon Repos Turtles and their colourful history.  Our ranger guide will talk us through the Turtle hatchlings, as they emerge from their nests and make their way to the water.

Note: As turtles can hatch at any time Mon Repos ranger staff cannot always guarantee a sighting. Remember – we are viewing wild animals in their natural environment! However, we have left the following night open to give us a positive chance to see the turtles.

This morning we arrive at the Botanic Gardens and visit the Hinkler Hall of Aviation, dedicated to the life of the famous aviator Bert Hinkler.

We’ll also enjoy a light lunch here in the gardens before heading to the iconic Bundy Rum Distillery for a guided tour.  This iconic Australian spirit has been rolled out of the production line for 110 years and today we are here for a guided tour.  We’ll be able to look, feel and taste our way through the making process starting with the raw material molasses to the aromas of maturing spirit. Before returning to the motel in time for dinner and another Turtle viewing if required.
