Mayor’s Welcome…

I wish to extend a very warm welcome and hope that you will find the information within this folder helpful as you settle in to living in the Bundaberg Region.

Situated at the southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef, and enjoying the world’s most superb climate, the Bundaberg Region is a provincial hub renowned for the friendliness of its residents, its limitless economic opportunities and a genuinely affordable cost of living.

Bundaberg Regional Council encompasses the towns of Childers, Gin Gin, Bundaberg City, Bargara and other delightful coastal and hinterland communities.  The Bundaberg region is located in the heart of a rich sugar and horticultural belt supported by a growing manufacturing sector.  Residents of the region enjoy easy access to a wide variety of services and vital infrastructure. These include three major hospitals, public schools and private colleges, and major campuses of CQ University and Wide Bay Institute of TAFE.

The city is a vital regional business hub for Queensland, boasting excellent shopping, sporting, cultural and tourism facilities and has become a popular venue for the staging of conferences and major events.

Within this folder you will find information about the services offered by our Council and other helpful services in the region.  As you will see, information has been categorised to make it easier for you to find what you are looking for.  This resource has been the initiative of Bundaberg Region Learning Community and Seniors Networks, and the Bundaberg Regional Council.

I hope your move to the Bundaberg Region will be an enriching one for both you and our community.  If Council can be of any further assistance, feel free to call into one of our Customer Service Centres or phone us on 1300 883 699.


Yours sincerely


Cr Mal Forman

Mayor - Bundaberg Regional Council
