Our first stop is to pay a visit to an Australian zoo where you can enjoy a crocodile feeding show, cuddle a koala and see so many native Australian animals like cute kangaroos.

Later you will check into Kelly’s Beach Resort in Bargara, Bundaberg where you can enjoy the beautiful resort facilities in your comfortable ECO Villa.

Day 2

Today you’ll get out for a full day on a Great Barrier Reef tour on the big, luxurious boat for the Lady Musgrave Island Experience.

If you’re there in whale watching season (June - November) you can watch the mighty Humpback Whale in its natural habitat.

Either way, you’re likely to see dolphins surfing on the bow of the boat and you can take a snorkel tour on the Great Barrier Reef using only the best quality snorkel equipment.

There’s a glass bottom boat tour of the Great Barrier Reef to see all the colourful fish, corals and turtles.

The glass bottom boat tour is a great option for non-swimmers to see the reef without getting wet.

You’ll take a guided walk on Lady Musgrave Island and see birdlife in the forest of Pisonia trees and turtles during nesting seasons (November to February).

Join us as we have a fish feeding presentation and enjoy seeing the thousands of fish in the gin clear waters.

Your eyes will be delighted as you take in the vista of the marine environment around Lady Musgrave Island and its brilliant lagoon.
