The Wide Bay Region has three major centres; Bundaberg, Hervey Bay and Maryborough.
Location - Bundaberg
The city has a population of around 45,000 people. However the Burnett Shire, which includes the Coral Coast surrounding the city's area, brings the total population up to around 70,000.
The city attractions include the famous Bundaberg Rum Distillery as well as numerous smaller attractions including Hinkler House, Tropical Winery, Schmeider's Cooperage and Mystery Craters.
Bundaberg is the centre of the greater region, which includes the Southern Great Barrier Reef and the Coral Isle: Lady Elliot & Lady Musgrave Islands. Turtles nest on the beaches in the summertime and whales frolic off shore during winter. The Coral Coast boasts absolutely beautiful oceanfront accommodation, an interesting coastline that includes excellent dive and snorkelling sites, long sandy beaches and rocky points.

Location - Maryborough
Maryborough is one of Queensland's oldest cities being first settled in 1847 as a wool port.
Nestled in a curve on the broad Mary River, much of the city's character had been preserved in its houses, mostly built of local timber, in a range of sizes and designs, from humble worker cottages to large mansions. The diversity and number of homes, which survive along its broad tree-lined streets, have given Maryborough its reputation as one of the most beautiful historic towns in Queensland. Today Maryborough's special charm is best discovered through the city's Heritage Walk, which takes in 28 key historical buildings in the central business district.
