“I have a bucket list and it is quite large…one of those things on that bucket list was to see the endangered loggerhead turtles at Mon Repos,” Jenni said.
“I can happily report that I can now tick that off my bucket list!
“This really was a life changer and something the kids and I will cherish forever. On top of our Turtle Encounter at Mon Repos, we really soaked in everything Bargara and the Bundaberg region has to offer.”

Paging Fun Mums visit gets the word out about Bundy
Bundaberg Tourism's marketing manager Ellie Tonkin said Jenni and her two children spent almost a week in the region, taking plenty of snaps to share with Paging Fun Mums followers.
“Our partnership with Paging Fun Mums is an exciting one as they have a considerable online audience and they have been long-time supporters of the Bundaberg Region,” Ellie said.
“They were an ideal medium to talk to our family audiences, which are the region’s primary target market over school holidays.”
Ellie said Paging Fun Mums was hosted as part of Bundaberg Tourism’s ‘famils’ program.
“Famils are the best way to convince our media partners about the quality of Bundaberg’s tourism experiences – by having them try it!” she said.
“The journalists, bloggers and influencers on these famils are targeted media who will help build our profile in our key markets.
“Having lived and loved their time in the Bundaberg Region, they use their respective channels to spread the word to others about how great it was and influence consumers in making their holiday decisions.”
