Mon Repas

Mon Repos

Only a couple of kilometres north of Bargara, Mon Repos is famous as the largest and most accessible turtle rookery in mainland Australia. During the day, Mon Repos is popular for swimming and sailing; however, the turtle nests must be taken into account. No dogs are allowed on the beach and beach umbrellas should not be used above the high water mark as they may damage the eggs.

​At the southern end of the beach, the estuary of Coach-house Creek drains a tidal mangrove community. A variety of wildlife can be seen in this area. Bert Hinkler’s historic glider flights happened here and at the age of nineteen, he attained the height of 30 feet in his first solo effort. The Kanaka Wall is a well-preserved piece of history. Kanakas were Melanesians from the South Pacific Islands who were indentured to work in Queensland cane fields during the period from 1879 to 1904. Part of their work was to clear volcanic rocks to allow cultivation of fields. The rocks were packed together to form fences and these could be seen all over the district.

Kellys Beach

Kellys Beach Bargara

Kelly’s Beach is situated to the south of Bargara township itself, offering a open water surf beach along its length with a tidal lagoon at its southern end and a tidal rock pool at the north end that is popular with families to sit and swim in. Being a patrolled beach during the summer months and close proximity to shopping, the golf course, caravan park and waterfront walks, this beach is often the choice of many for their recreational activities.
Featuring a nice sheltered BBQ and shower/toilet block, plenty of car parking and another adjacent beach (Archies) Kelly’s is definitely a beach to experience and spend some time at.

Elliott Heads

Elliott Heads

Elliott Heads is situated at the Elliot River mouth and offers both surf and calm water swimming. It is also a popular spot for wind and kite surfing while the fishing is good from the shore or on nearby reefs. Sandstone cliffs form an interesting headland and the rocky foreshore is fun to explore. A shady, landscaped caravan park is adjacent to the beach, as are a number of pleasant picnic spots with barbecue and toilet facilities. Surf lifesavers patrol the designated swimming areas during the summer season. This is a great family holiday destination.

Elliott Heads along with Riverview are the southernmost of the local beaches situated at the mouth of the Elliott River, and are surrounded by rural cane and small crop farms. Unit and cabin accommodation is available. Only 18 kilometers from the city, access is via Elliott Heads Road.

Our Surfing & SUPing destinations are some of the best in Australia

Our surf school and SUP school locations are some of the most beautiful beaches in Queensland. Our area is located perfectly in Queensland, Australia. All locations are only a short 20 minute drive from the centre of Bundaberg, or even closer from Bargara. Our area is located only five hours north of the Gold Coast, and even closer to Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Agnes Water 1770 and Rockhampton. We are located in a prime location on the east coast – north enough to be warm all year round, but south enough to avoid hazards such as stingers and crocodiles.  So we hope to see you come and learn to surf or experience Stand Up Paddleboarding in one of our beautiful locations soon!
