Tales of mystery and mayhem will be revealed during a one-hour walking tour of the Bundaberg CBD, with participants set to weave through laneways and buildings to uncover the region’s fascinating past.
Hosted by Creative Regions, the StoryWalk Tours will delve into the history of the town as part of the upcoming Milbi Festival activities.
Artistic Director Di Wills said the stories featured had been collated through various sources and ranged from mysterious, fascinating and funny.
“All of the stories we tell on this tour come from a mix of good-old fashioned library research and lots of conversations,” Di said.
“There are a few laughs along the way, including the ‘dunny boy' antics in Post Office Lane.
“We encourage anyone who is curious about the city they live in to take part, and we also love to pick up new stories along the walk if you have your own to share.”
Di said the walking tour was the perfect opportunity to gain more knowledge of the region, with the stories sure to make great conversation starters in the future.
“Once you have taken the tour you will know all you need to for the next time you have visitors in town and you can take them for the same stroll and share what stories resonated with you,” she said.
It is important everyone attending the event comes prepared with walking shoes, a shady hat and water bottle.
There are two tours leaving at 10 am and 11 am on Saturday 6 November.
