Top Things to Do and See
Hinkler Hall of Aviation
The Hinkler Hall of Aviation was built to honour Bert Hinkler – a Bundaberg native who gained worldwide recognition for his aviation feats. He designed aircraft and flew planes as well, breaking several world records during his career. Hinkler was the first person to fly solo from England to Australia and the first to fly solo across the Southern Atlantic Ocean. Aviation enthusiasts can learn all about Hinkler and general Australian aviation while travelling from Newcastle to Bundaberg. The Hinkler Hall has plenty of interesting exhibits, flight simulators, interactive displays, and antique aircraft on show.
Mon Repos Turtle Centre
Head over to the Bundaberg coast where you can pay a visit to the popular Mon Repos Turtle Centre. Mon Repos is a conservation centre for marine turtles that specifically strives to protect and increase the population of endangered loggerhead turtles. Visitors to the centre can learn all about Queensland’s marine turtles through educational and interactive exhibits. You can even time your Newcastle to Bundaberg flights for certain periods to make your trip even more memorable. Head to the Bundaberg region between November and March to witness the magical nesting and hatching seasons. Once you’ve spent some time at the Turtle Centre, Mon Repos also has a couple of beautiful coastal walking tracks where you may spot other local wildlife.
There are a handful of beaches that you can visit while holidaying on flights from Newcastle to Bundaberg. Woodgate Beach is one of the most impressive in the region, stretching for about 16 kilometres (10 miles) to the south of central Bundaberg. It has a tropical and secluded feel to it, and you’ll feel like you have the whole place to yourself even during the winter high season. The ocean water along Woodgate Beach is calm, making it a good spot for swimming and paddle boarding. Burrum Coast National Park borders Woodgate Beach to the south, and the two together make for an excellent day trip out of the city. If you rent a 4WD for your trip, you can even have some fun on the scenic 4WD tracks through the national park.
Bundaberg enjoys warm daytime temperatures year-round. Pack some shorts, t-shirts, and sandals as well as swimsuits if you’ll be going to the beach or trying water activities. Temperatures can drop to about 11°C on winter evenings, so bring along some jeans, jumpers, and a jacket if you’ll be travelling from Newcastle to Bundaberg during the cooler months. There are some excellent hikes around the Bundaberg region of Queensland, so a pair of sturdy shoes comes in handy too.
Alongside your normal toiletries, pack some reef-safe sunscreen to protect your skin from the strong Queensland sun (and protect Queensland’s fragile coral reefs from harmful chemicals).
