Bundaberg in a day from Hervey Bay

A new day trip taking in all the highlights of Bundaberg and Childers is now departing from Hervey Bay.

The full day tour departs at 7.45am and heads straight to Snakes Down Under in Childers for a chance to touch a real snake over morning tea. Next stop is the Bundaberg Barrel for a 3D holographic ginger beer adventure show and a delicious taste-test of this famous brewed beverage. Heading out to the coastal hub of Bargara, the tour stops at Bargara Berries for a relaxed lunch in a beautiful Queensland country setting. After lunch, it’s back into Bundaberg to visit Schmeider’s Cooperage where you can watch genuine artisans hard at work blowing glass and hand-crafting timber barrels. Then it’s over to the Bundaberg Rum Distillery and Bondstore to unlock the secrets of rum making in the heart of the town’s famous distillery. And finish off the day with a delicious home made ice cream from the region’s famous Mammino’s Ice Cream, before arriving back in Hervey Bay at 6pm. The tour costs $135 for adults and $90 for children aged four to 17 years and includes all meals and entry prices. Ph: (07) 4128 6500 or visit
