Bundy Region Scavenger Hunt winner lands barra

One lucky winner of the Bundy Region Scavenger Hunt not only won a fishing charter prize, they landed a 77 centimetre barramundi on their first trip to the region.

Kim Patrick from the Sunshine Coast heard about the Scavenger Hunt on social media and started following the daily clues.

“It was good to research and learn things about your region,” Kim said.

As luck would have it, they won the Fishing Charter prize from Lake Monduran Holiday Park.

“I was shocked when I was told I had won and immediately thought of my dad as I know he used to be a keen fisherman in his younger days.”

Their fishing charter exceeded all expectations.

“Rob was amazing and dad and him hit it off very quickly.

“Dad was keen to showcase his great casting techniques. Even at the ripe age of 85, he still had a great eye for casting and I think Rob was suitably impressed.”

Rob from Lake Monduran Holiday Park said the scavenger hunt winner had a fabulous day out.

“Kim was so excited to get her father out fishing,” Rob said.

“John was an avid fisherman back in the day but hadn’t wet a line for 14 years so this prize was a great opportunity for him to re-live some fishing memories.

“Whilst John put in a great effort the barra wouldn’t bite for him.

“Steve, Kim’s husband was the lucky one boating himself a 77cm barra which was great going as barra don’t react well to colder conditions and it was a cold day.

“Kim was telling me she was so excited to win this prize as they wouldn’t have thought to visit our region otherwise.

“The day before the charter they had booked a whale watching tour and they had an amazing time viewing whales in great weather conditions.”

The Bundy Region Scavenger Hunt was a joint initiative between Bundaberg Regional Council’s Community Development Unit and Strategic Planning Team; and was promoted on social media through Bundaberg Tourism.
