There is a lot of work here picking tomatoes and other fruits and vegetables. Hostels here can help you find work.
Pretty good tour of this famous rum distillery. Tickets are around $30 but cheaper online (bundabergrum.com.au/distillery/book-a-tour).
Nice bar and brewery.
Food market open on Friday night. Good spot for a beer and something to eat. They often have live music.
Fresh seafood and cold beers overlooking the river. Not the cheapest place but very nice.
Social working hostel in town. They can organise a job and transport to and from work.
Beautiful free campsite just out of Bundaberg. BBQs and toilets.
