Retire in Bundaberg?

Looking to retire in Bundaberg?

Located 4 hours north of Brisbane in the Wide Bay region, Bundaberg combines the perfect mix of natural attractions, idyllic climate, relaxed pace, modern facilities and friendly people. You’re minutes from the stunning beaches of Bargara, Elliott Heads and Burnett Heads. You’re also close to the stunning Mon Repos, home to the largest concentration of nesting turtles on the east coast. Every year, endangered loggerhead turtles lay their eggs in the dunes. With a carefully planned tour program, you can witness these turtles make their way ashore. You can also watch the very cute hatchlings make their way back to the ocean months later.

Explore the red dirt roads connecting Bundaberg to Childers, Moore Park Beach, and beyond, where roadside stalls boast an abundance of produce available for purchase. Do your shopping at the local markets where locally-grown produce is hand-picked by local farmers. Being close by to the world famous rum distillery is handy and if the rum isn’t to your taste, their brewed soft drinks are a great thirst quencher for the sub-tropical sunny days. Bundaberg offers a wealth of produce being grown, brewed, distilled and caught year-round.

Bundaberg and the North Burnett are rich with year-round produce. From sweet, juicy strawberries, zesty limes and honey-roasted macadamia nuts, to fresh, flavour-filled ginger and humongous sweet potatoes, the shopping list goes on and on.

Bundaberg also has all the shopping amenities you could want, a vibrant cafe culture through the CBD and Bargara, an airport serviced by Qantas and Alliance Airlines and is close to historic towns like Childers and Seventeen Seventy.

However you like to spend your days, Bundaberg has a perfect climate and many attractions, a great place to call home.
