Bundaberg South: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Lake Ellen Heritage Hub and Playground

This brightly coloured playground suitable for all ages and abilities also includes a bicycle safety course where the children can practice obeying road signs and traffic directions. Lake Ellen Heritage Hub also includes a wheelchair accessible section which enables all visitors to be able to play.

While the kids are playing, the adults can take in the beautiful surrounds with ducks and other birdlife splashing in the water while the smell of molasses from the nearby distilleries waft through the air.

East Bundaberg Water Tower


The East Water Tower is a must visit as it is believed to be the only circular brick tower in Queensland. Given Bundaberg's relatively flat terrain, this tower is the perfect example of late 19th century technology - using the increased water pressure provided by the tower in order to allow the reticulated water system to flow through efficiently.

The East Water Tower demonstrates Bundaberg's development as a major regional city serving one of Queensland's most significant sugar growing districts

The East Bundaberg Water Tower is only a couple of minutes walk from Lake Ellen Heritage Hub..

MV Karma Shipwreck


Christmas came early to divers in the Bundaberg area in December 2003, when a 42 metre long gravel barge sank off the coast north of the city. That ship was the MV Karma and today it rests in 26 metres of water and is one of the best wreck dives in Queensland.

This barge is an incredible wreck as divers can explore the huge hold, a massive crane boom, the two level bridge structure, cabins and the engine room. But while the ship is fascinating to explore it is the marine life that will blow you away. Swarming around the ship are schools of trevally, barracuda, snapper and batfish. Reef fish are everywhere, and other residents of the ship include gropers, stingrays, wobbegongs, sea snakes, turtles, moray eels, octopus and nudibranchs.

Bundaberg War Memorial


Bundaberg's WWI memorial has the distinction of being unveiled twice - the soldier statue, imported from Italy, had not arrived in time for the ANZAC Day 1921 memorial unveiling and another ceremony was held a year later.

Designed by Bundaberg architect FH Faircloth and contracted to Anselm Odling of Sydney, it is also one of the most expensive WWI monuments in Queensland, costing ?1,650.

The marble digger stands on top of column; a pedestal below bears the names of 1 Boer War casualty and 277 men who died in the WWI conflict.

Commemorative plates to later conflicts have been added to the pedestal.

An imposing 11.5 metres high, it stands on an island of neatly striped grass and concrete, creating a traffic roundabout in the sugar cane city's main thoroughfare, its height complementing the adjacent post office tower.
