Project of the Bundaberg Regional Council


The Bundaberg region, nestled adjacent to the southern Great Barrier Reef, is the perfect place to reside. Located just to the north of the hustle and bustle of the South East Queensland corner, the region presents a relaxed lifestyle alternative for those seeking to establish their roots in a non-metropolitan commercial centre with an array of industry in which to find employment.



With established export markets in horticulture, seafood, livestock, food and agri-processing, sugar cane, aviation and education, the area has abundant investment and employment opportunities for the discerning entrepreneur.



The Bundaberg region hosts myriad leisure activities to indulge in when it’s time to unwind. These range from boating, fishing or 4WDing to dining and socialising at one of the towns’ many pubs and clubs in the evenings.



Invest Bundaberg brands the commercial business and investment opportunities under Business Bundaberg, with the primary focus of assisting those with investment aspirations within the Bundaberg region. Invest Bundaberg provides specific project detail, as well as general investment information covering the Bundaberg Region.
