Tinaberries is a working fruit producing farm nestled between the city of Bundaberg and the Southern Great Barrier Reef coastal town of Elliott Heads. Rich in history and even a residential wild kangaroo "Bob" this is a truly wonderful experience. Rich soil from this volcanic region coupled with the tropical climate enables Tinaberries to produce superior quality fruit year round. Fruit is sold direct on the farm, locally and even transported to Melbourne’s finest restaurants. During strawberry growing season visitors are invited to "Pick your own" which is very popular with locals as well as visitors to the region. All year around Tinaberries sells delicious fresh fruit ice cream in huge serves! Whether it's to call in on a drive back from the coast for an ice cream, Pick you own strawberries or just to soak up the traditional and historic farm yard experience, Tinaberries has something for every visitor to the South East Queensland region. Right now it's ICE CREAM SEASON!!
Such a beautiful setting with pretty gardens, lots of fun games for the kids to play and delicious ice cream (strawberry, blueberry and passion fruit when we were there). Very friendly welcoming staff. Highly recommend. We will return very soon ;-)

Splitters Farm is a working cattle farm & farm stay camping destination just 10min drive north of Bundaberg's bustling central business district. Splitters is a safe haven to over 250 rescued farm animals and counting & conduct self-guided 'Meet the Animals' walking tours at 10am / 11am / 1pm & 2:30pm each day. Bookings are preferred via their website https://bookingsau.newbook.cloud/splittersfarm/index.php?availability_activity Set amongst lush tropical bush land, the 160 acre property is also bordered by Splitters Creek, a fresh water reserve that feeds into the beautiful Burnett River. Visitors can explore the surrounding creek by hiring a kayak, canoe or SUP board. The acreage is home to native animals such as wallabies, platypus, barramundi, prehistoric lung fish and boasts over 150 documented species of bird life. Splitters Farm is currently in a transformation period to offer glamping and camping options by December 2020 in addition to its farm tours & activities.
Great place for kids and animal lovers! The Glamping Tents were first class with everything we could possibly need. You could literally bring clothes and that’s it! Such a relaxing place and the animals make it even better. Camping is a bit of a hassle for our family with a new born and the Glamping Tents made it possible. We got the experience with our family without any effort whatsoever. They have absolutely everything you could possibly need in the accommodation (even firewood to have a camp fire!) we can’t wait to come back again!

The lighthouse on Lady Elliot Island was built in 1873. Standing at approximately 17 metres, the white and red lighthouse was pre-fabricated in England and shipped to the island in pieces. It was the first lighthouse in Australia with a timber frame and weatherproof cast iron external cladding. The lighthouse was decommissioned in 1995 when it became too short for the surrounding vegetation and a new solar powered, fully automated tower was built. The original lighthouse was placed on the Commonwealth Heritage List in 2004. The Lady Elliot Island Lightstation Heritage Management Plan was developed by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) in March 2012 to protect, conserve and manage the Commonwealth Heritage values of the Lady Elliot Island lighthouse. Unfortunately, the lighthouse is not open to the public but is often the focus of history and photography buffs. There is a little museum in the adjacent building containing historical information and memorabilia.
The lighthouse on Lady Elliot Island is a very ornate and gorgeous lighthouse that overlooks the deep side of the island where you can snorkel off in 20-30 metre deep water. Although it is not currently in use, it provides a good landmark that looks good in pictures.

An excellent bush walk for most fitness levels. Diverse landscape views from Australian bush to oceanic views overlooking the Keppel Islands. A must see if you're visiting the Capricorn Coast!
