While the drive from Bundaberg to Moore Park Beach is a short one, the journey easily becomes an adventure with a few fun-filled stops along the way.

North Bundaberg

When you cross the river from Bundaberg, or head into town from Moore Park Beach, you will find yourself in North Bundaberg where fun and flavours await.

A few things you should try out include:

  • Explore the Botanical Gardens and Hinkler Hall of Aviation. 
  • If quirky is your thing, you’ll love having coffee at Oodie’s Café (recently moved to 7 Kolan Street).
  • Grab a platter made from regional produce at the Last Stop Convenience Shop and find a spot for a picnic.
  • Grab some quality cuts of meat from the Bundy Chop Shop to bring back to the motel and cook on the BBQ.

Diverse Moore Park Road

As you travel Moore Park Rd, within the space of around 15km you will see farms producing a range of crops including sweet potatoes, sugar cane, macadamias, avocados, beans, peas, lettuce, mushrooms, and even roses.

Farm Gate Stalls

You will also come across several farm gate stalls where you can pick up produce straight from the farm much cheaper than you will pay at the shops. NOTE: Many of these stalls use honesty boxes. Please, be fair.

What Are Those Purple Flowers?

Our guests often ask about the crop they noticed with the purple flowers. Those are sweet potatoes.

Slow Down & Enjoy

When you take the time to notice what’s around you, it’s amazing what you can discover on even the shortest of journeys. So be sure to stop and smell the roses (and all the other delightful aromas along the way).
