Other than the prison camp Bundaberg was a nice place. An outback town that seems to be being forced into the 21st century by putting out of place supermarkets and McDonalds in sleepy streets. As usual I arrived on a holiday so all the shops were shut until my leaving day but I survived.
The Burnett/Fitroy river that the town sits on is quite pretty but the effect of January's flooding is still evident with all the river based attractions shut down until further notice.
Bundaberg as everyone should know is famous for two major exports. The first is Bundaberg Rum and the second is the soft drink option Bundaberg Ginger Beer. I decided to go see both distilleries which turned out to be quite a long walk out of town.

Today I'm headed just a short trip to Agnes Water and the Town of 1770 where hopefully I'll be headed out to the most southern region of the Great Barrier Reef.
