Sister Cities


With a close proximity to the Southern Great Barrier Reef and its world famous Mon Repos Turtle Discover Centre, Bundaberg has a competitive advantage to attract more Chinese tourists to the region.

Council has been closely working with Bundaberg North Burnett Tourism in promoting local tourism products to the Nanning and wider Chinese markets. The China Ready Program jointly developed by Council and BNBT gives local tourism operators an opportunity to gain necessary Chinese cultural and linguistic understanding and skills, so that they will be ready to host a large number of Chinese tourists in the years ahead. 

Local tourism operators and accommodation providers such as Kelly’s Beach Resort, Kacy’s Beach Motel, Mon Repos and Lady Musgrave Island Cruise will be expected to host high school and university students, business people and government officials from Nanning from 2015.
