Weekender serves up state beach volleyball preview

In this week’s Bundaberg Now Weekender we preview the beach volleyball action underway at Elliott Heads on Saturday and Sunday with some of the nation’s best competitors taking part.

We also delve into the history of local returned serviceman George Stedman who, despite having his arm amputated after being wounded during active service in France, dedicated a lifetime to his community.

Driven to improve life for fellow servicemen, George played a lead role in establishing the original Bundaberg Memorial Baths and was awarded a Life Membership of the Queensland Amateur Swimming Club.

Also, read about the increased schedule for Qantas’ Bundaberg flights with seat availability returning to pre-COVID numbers.

Weekender is an attractive digital magazine with curated stories from the Bundaberg Now website and notices from Bundaberg Regional Council.

All the stories are free to read.

Bundaberg Now Weekender can be viewed on a desktop, tablet or mobile phone. It can also be downloaded and read as a PDF file.

Weekender can be easily printed if you want to feel the touch of paper.
