The Bundaberg area is full of drawcards to allure our fellow four-wheel drivers to come and visit.

Recently the Bundaberg Four Wheel Drive Club was able to share some of our favourite spots and show members of the Queensland 4×4 Club what we have on our doorstep.

Kinkuna National Park was the base for the weekend.

There is nothing more iconic than camping at the oceans edge, sitting around an open fire talking about the adventures of a trip to somewhere new.

The group set out to traverse the Cordalba State Forest to cover off the bush aspect of the weekend.

Tracks were reasonably easy to drive but a fair bit of clearing had gone into making them passable.

Lantana and trees across the route made for some interesting moments, with bush pinstripes part and parcel if you want to get out and explore.

The Woodgate Hotel was a great stopover for a late lunch, then out to the Burrum Coast National Park and the Burrum Point campground to show yet another top spot to camp for the visitors.

The tide was out and a run down the beach was the perfect way to get back.

Beach driving in the area differs greatly with the beach at Woodgate being hard packed and smooth, as opposed to the Kinkuna section of beach that is a coarser grain of sand and softer to traverse.

Tyre pressure is key to sand driving with the group having no trouble getting back to camp.

The Mon Repos Turtle experience allowed our visitors to watch young hatchlings dig free and make their way to the water.

The popular activity is booked out months in advance and the group got in early to secure a spot on yet another local attraction that’s not to be missed.

A visit to the Bundaberg Rum Distillery for the out of towners to stock up on the “special products” that are only available at the distillery capped off an adventure filled weekend, with the visitors vowing to return and see what else our region has to offer.
