You may be mistaken for thinking you have flown into a tropical paradise upon arrival at Bargara. Palm trees line the foreshore, the Southern Great Barrier Reef stretches out before you, and the climate is just like Hawaii - it's time to kick back and relax. This very family friendly seaside town just 13 kilometres from Bundaberg has heaps of parks, beaches, cafes, shops and activities to explore. You can swim all year round here, with several beaches stretching from Neilson's Park to the north to Kellys Beach to the south. The Esplanade is perfect for your morning or afternoon walk with six kilometres of paved pathway perfect for scooters, bikes, trikes or walkers. Say hi to the pooches (and their humans) that you see each day on their regular walk. The Basin is a protected swimming spot for young and old, best dipped in high tide, where you can take some bread down and feed the many fish that swim around your legs or pop some googles on to take a peek. The Turtle Park offers shaded grass areas and a big playground in the shape of a turtle.
