It’s heaven for self-catering holidaymakers. The region around Bundaberg has an Australia-wide reputation for the quality of its fruit and vegetables, as anyone who has sampled a lush Bundaberg tomato or succulent strawberry can attest. Think also lychees, melons, sweet potato, avocado and citrus, among many others. Look out for pick-your-own fruit farms, or stop at the numerous simple roadside stalls to fill up the grocery basket. Payment, usually little more than loose change, will often be via ‘honesty box’.
