Situated on the Burnett River and just 13 kilometres from the coast, Bundaberg stands as one of Queensland's most modern and progressive cities. An idyllic sub-tropical climate and a secure water supply have allowed the region to become a leading export producer of agricultural and horticultural produce.

  • tourism
  • retail and wholesale trade
