When most people think of a GBR getaway it normally involves a flight, expensive accommodation and transport costs. But what if I told you some of the best GBR experiences are less than half day’s drive and if you’re towing a van can also include some wonderful beachside stays in some truly beautiful locations.
On this journey, I am taking the Jayco Journey Outback edition on a road trip to one of my favourite Queensland destinations, Bundaberg or more specifically Bargara Beach. Bundy by the Sea!! The Bargara Beach Caravan Park is council-owned and sits on the most sensational block overlooking Neilsons Bay, Bundy’s favourite surf spot. The park is large very green and has all the amenities you could hope for.
This Jayco is perfectly set up for a trip like this with all the mod cons, tv, microwave, a massive kitchen, shower, ensuite and comfy sofa. Very livable indeed. But I am here to see the sights not lounge in Jayco luxury so let’s get busy.
The Main Event departs Burnett Heads, Bundaberg’s main port regularly for Lady Musgrave Lagoon absolute jewel in the crown that is Queensland’s GBR. She is a magnificently appointed vessel that comes complete with glass bottom boats, dive and fishing tenders and on island tours complete with marine biologists.
There is no doubt however as to the star of the show on Lady Elliott. It’s the magnificent 14-hectare lagoon which lights up in every shade of blue you can imagine. Brett Lakey is the proud skipper of The Lady Musgrave experience and you can tell he loves his job.
So to round out the day its only fitting that I check out what all the fuss is about, it is truly a special thing to immerse yourself in. Lady Musgrave Experience departs most days from Burnett Heads you can book online here.
The Bargara Beach Caravan Park is fifteen minutes east of Bundy and perfect for a sneaky breakaway. And If you like the look of the Jayco Journey Outback and how could you not?? Talk to the team at Brisbane Camperland about their huge range of Jayco products.
