The Best Walking Trails in Bundaberg

Four hours north of Brisbane, Bundaberg sits on the edge of the Great Barrier Reef and is home to loggerhead and green sea turtles, manta rays and migrating humpback whales. Of the range of walking tracks in Bundaberg, the Mapleton Falls circuit is a gentle 45-minute stroll through rainforest, with signs explaining ecosystem dynamics and tips for plant identification. The Paperbark Walk is another hike near Bundaberg through endangered coastal forest where lorikeets thrive, and the rare grey goshawk can be spotted. The region’s walks are ideal for those seeking to immerse themselves in the natural charm and captivating scenery of this Australian coastal gem. Where options are aplenty, end the day with a meal of fresh local produce.
