Welcome to Bargara
Some 16km east of Bundaberg, Bargara is a very popular beachside holiday destination for Queenslanders due to its surf beach, long esplanade and quiet, family-friendly atmosphere. It was built by the South Pacific Islanders who were brought to work in the cane fields from various island nations in the late 19th century. Recent years have seen a few high-rises sprout up along the foreshore but the effect is relatively low-key. Families find Bargara attractive for its clean beaches and safe swimming, particularly at the ‘basin’, a sheltered artificial rock pool.
