Our favorite Queensland Marina
Reviewed Mar 2017
The marina is located just inside the mouth of the Burnett River and is very secure in all winds. The berths are very wide and most easily accessible. There are also a number of catamaran berths available. The marina staff are extremely friendly and helpful and will happily assist with berthing etc.
There is a self serve fuel dock on site which has the cheapest fuel on the coast. During our stay diesel was $1.27 per litre (cheaper than the service stations in Bundaberg), There is a small but reasonably well stocked chandlery located in the marina and extensive marine services are available including an excellent marine engineer, shipwright electrical, sail maker, haul out and dry storage.. Bathroom facilities are modern, clean and well maintained. A coin operated laundry is onsite. Limited free WIFI is available but does not reach all areas of the marina. Other facilities at the marina include a very popular restaurant/bar and takeaway fish and chip shop. Cruisers Corner is a nice social hub for cruisers provided by the marina with BBQ, fridge, seating and a television.
Ocean Pacific Seafoods is located next door to the marina offering exceptional fresh seafood and bait. They have a special for marina clients of a fresh platter for two with smoked salmon, two spanner crabs, two Moreton Bay bugs plus prawns for $30. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
An IGA supermarket, Post Office, Bakery, Café and Hotel are located in the township of Burnett Heads about a kilometre from the marina. The IGA and Hotel both provide a free shuttle bus for customers.
The marina provides a free shuttle bus into the Bundaberg CBD about 20 minutes away Monday to Saturday and to the excellent Farmers Markets on Sunday Morning.
The facilities and incredibly friendly, helpful nature of the staff sees us give our first ever Five Star rating to this marina.
