Bundaberg East Cabin & Tourist Park

Most people will have heard of Bundaberg because of its association with rum. You don’t have to drink it to know Bundy rum has played a huge part in the developing history of Australia.

And at the Bundaberg East Cabin and Tourist Park you’re within walking distance to the Bundaberg Rum Distillery as well as the Baldwin Environmental Reserve.

This caravan park, proudly park of the Bundaberg landscape, is also just a 10-minute drive to Bargara’s beaches and the famous Mon Repos Turtle Centre.


There are four styles of on-site accommodation ranging from the standard one bedroom cabin for up to three people to the superior family cabin that sleeps up to eight.

If you want a powered site you have the choice between an en-suite site with double slab or a shared en-suite site with grass suitable for tents and campers trailers, plus room for a boat!



The park has a good swimming pool for those glorious warm days the area is so well known for. There is a playground for the kids too. If you’re camping there is an excellent camp kitchen and barbecues available for you to use.

I really like it when a park has a library, so I can leave a couple of books in exchange for a couple of new ones. It’s a really good way to keep a supply of books going without having to store them all in the van. I know you can read them on your iPad or tablet, but I still like to hold one in my hand and turn a real page!



When it come time to get out and about, there is a lot to look at, but let’s start with Bundy Rum. The best way to find out about it all is to take a tour, and it is really interesting. Learning about the history of rum in Australia, and finding out about the range of products. After our tour we did a bit of sampling and I was bowled over by the Bundaberg Rum Liqueur Coffee and Chocolate. This how has cemented a place in our house and ensures repeat visits to Bundaberg because that is the closest place for us to buy it!


Did you know that Bert Hinkler was from Bundaberg? He is famous for a pioneering solo flight from England to Australia in 1928. He added more fame to his name with the world’s first solo flight across the South Atlantic in 1931. He left for England for when he was 21 and for some time lived in a house called Mon Repos. This house has been moved from Southhampton (UK) to Bundaberg. Bert Hinkler was an aviation pioneer who died attempting another record breaking flight in 1933.


Mon Repos is better known as the Turtle nesting site. It is a major event each year and is managed to ensure that the Turtles can lay their eggs as they need to, the hatchlings will have the best chance of survival and the tourists can see and understand all about the need to protect this beach for the future survival of the turtles.

There is so much more to do here, and the people in the park office have plenty of information for you. Bundaberg East Cabin and Tourist Park is a really good base to explore all that Bundaberg has to offer.
