Explore our region: Buss Park

Buss Park is a well-maintained memorial park located on one of Bundaberg’s most prominent intersections.

The area contains manicured landscaped gardens and several memorials providing a focal point and entrance statement to the Bundaberg Central Business District from the west.

Offering plentiful seating and colourful plantings, Buss Park is popular with locals and visitors looking to enjoy lunch or a coffee in scenic surrounds.

The site was originally a school reserve in which the first Bundaberg public school was opened in 1875.

After the school relocated, the site became a reserve for public use and was named Buss Park in the early 1930s after a prominent local family.

Frederic Buss was a Bundaberg businessman who owned interests in sugar and juice mills in the region as well as retail enterprises.

A significant feature in Buss Park is a 40 tonne Grecian altar memorial dedicated to Bundaberg aviation pioneer Bert Hinkler.

The park also includes Australia’s first historic engineering plaque, which celebrates the development of the world’s first successful sugar cane harvesters by Toft Brothers and Massey Ferguson in Bundaberg in 1970.
