Accommodation bookings for the school holidays are looking strong, but there’s still some availability for locals to enjoy a holiday close to home.

Hundreds of people are expected to come to our region from this weekend as the Easter break gets underway.

CEO of Bundaberg Tourism Katherine Reid says we’ll mainly see people who live within a reasonable drive or those visiting their families.

“They’re booking a year in advance. We know that our holiday parks, and there’s a few accommodation properties, do have the same families coming back every year, which is really wonderful it means that we are offering that really special holiday experience,” she says.

“Accommodation bookings are looking strong right across the region, but there is still availability and all of our tourism attractions, cafes and restaurants are ready and waiting to look after holiday makers across the region.”

Ms Reid says there’s plenty for locals and tourists to enjoy including the Bundaberg Rum Visitor Experience and the Mon Repos Turtle Centre.

“Taribelang Bunda Cultural Tours are already booked out for the Saturday of the Easter weekend, but they are travelling Tuesdays and Saturdays during the holidays for their local cultural tour, so there’s a few different things that people can experience,” she says.
