Kelly's Beach is 15km east of Bundaberg. Here the Great Barrier Reef begins with the two coral Islands, Lady Musgrave and Lady Elliott Islands, both of which are accessible by fast cataraman or plane. See the humpback whales(mid Aug-Oct) from a luxury catamaran or the giant turtles at the Turtle Rookery at Mon Repos from late November to late January. In summer they come ashore to lay eggs and ten weeks later, tiny turtle hatchlings make their dash for the sea. Visit the famous Bundaberg Rum Distillery, Bert Hinkler Memorial or Schmeider's Cooperage.
