Holidaymakers are spoilt for choice when it comes to picking a beachside vacation in Queensland. But here are the top 5 reasons you need to put Bargara at the top of your must-visit holiday list.

There’s no better climate.

Did you know Bargara’s climate is similar to Hawaii? With an average yearly temperature of 21 degrees, Bargara turns on the sunshine most of the year.

In summer Bargara’s charm is long sun-filled days and cooling dips in the ocean. In winter visitors enjoy the warming sunshine and quieter beaches – it’s much easier to find your own private spot. And with water temperatures still up around 20 degrees, some even find they enjoy a refreshing swim.

Watching the wildlife in their natural habitat

There is nothing more spectacular than seeing nesting turtles or migrating whales – and you can do both from Bargara.

The viewing season for humpback whales begins in June and runs through to the end of October. Turtles start nesting in November, with hatchlings making their appearance about six-weeks later, through until March.

The perfect spot when you want to do nothing

With an abundance of beaches on offer and luxury accommodation options, there is every reason to plan a relaxed holiday here. All you’ll need is your togs, towel, sunscreen and a good book.

There’s also plenty to do

When you want a relaxing holiday that keeps you busy, Bargara is the place for you. There are plenty of parks and activities that utilise the kilometres-long multi-modal pathway. Learn to surf or dive, or hire bikes and segues for a unique view of the coastline. Make sure you leave time for browsing the small shops filled with unique and boutique gifts, homeware and fashion.

For a change of pace, Bundaberg is just a 15-minute drive where. Here you will find cinemas, bowling, adventure playgrounds for the kids as well as other must-see tourist attractions like the Hinkler Hall of Aviation and Bundaberg Rum for the adults. There is also plenty more shopping on offer, both in the major shopping centres and in the vibrant CBD.

Bargara’s lifestyle and culture are unmatched

Nowhere else can you find the perfect blend of laid-back beach culture, with sophisticated café, dining and shopping experiences.
