Why Bundaberg ?

Bundaberg and the Bundaberg Port Marina is better suited to service the needs of our rally participants.

Some of the advantages the Port of Bundaberg & the Bundaberg Port Marina have over other destinations we considered are;

  • The Port of Bundaberg is the closest Australian Port of Entry from New Caledonia thus reducing passage time and the risk of participants encountering adverse weather conditions on route.

  • The Port of Bundaberg offers, all-weather, deep-water access, with much less likelihood of encountering concentrated shipping traffic on approach to the port than many of the other Queensland & NSW Port of Entry.

  • Professional and friendly Customs and Quarantine Officers that specialise in small craft arrival.

  • Inward clearance takes place at Bundaberg Port Marina which is located only one nautical mile from the entrance to the river. 

  • Bundaberg is the gateway to the Southern Great Barrier Reef and World Heritage listed Fraser Island meaning their is some sensational cruising on offer right on your doorstep.

  • Largest dry storage facility on the East Coast of Australia with a modern sealed hardstand area , professional staff and competitive rates.

  • Relaxed marina with quality berths, clean amenities, WIFI and a courtesy bus into the city of Bundaberg. 

  • Walking distance to the township of Burnett Heads shopping village, Hotel/Motel, Sports Club

  • Walking distance to quiet, uncrowded beaches and parklands 

  • Great base for "Land Cruising" (travelling by road) to discover the inland beauty that Australia has to offer.

Like many of you, we have been cruising in many different countries.

We have spent time in the Port of Bundaberg and stayed at the Bundaberg Port Marina many times and we always feel safe, welcome and at home.
