For the budding geologist, a short drive about 20 minutes west of Bundaberg on the way to the township of Gin Gin is the baffling ‘mystery craters’. These really have to be seen to be believed. Discovered in 1971 these 35 strange rock formations have been the subject of countless investigations and theories worldwide. Ponder the mystery of this 25 million year old phenomena over a bite to eat.
Located about a 15 minute drive from Bundaberg to the coast is Mon Repos Beach conservation park. Here you can have the unique experience of a turtle encounter between November and February each year. During breeding season dozens of Loggerhead, Green and Flatback turtles come ashore to lay their eggs and 6-8 weeks later the tiny hatchlings emerge and make their way back to the sea. Bookings are important with the money going towards vital conservation work, this is something the whole family can appreciate and enjoy.
