Why people who live in Bundy are holidaying at Bargara

HOLIDAY-MAKER and Bundaberg North resident Mal Ace said he often stayed at the Bargara Beach Caravan Park with the family because of the convenience on the school holidays.

"We come out here about three times a year," he said.

"The kids can go off, have fun with their friends and just come back for smoko and lunch."

He said they had been doing it for the past five years and it meant either himself or his wife could continue to work as the children enjoyed the school holidays.

"It's just 20 minutes to home and the good thing about this park if you can even bring your pet," he said.

The children said they preferred to be outdoors rather than cooped up at home for the school break.

Mr Ace said they would sometimes camp at Seventeen Seventy but Bargara was the main spot his family camped.
