The beautiful Bargara coastline features many beaches, rocky outcrops, swimming, surfing, scuba diving, boating areas as well as some great accommodation and restaurants. Situated a short drive from Bundaberg Queensland, Bargara is a jewel in the Wide Bay region.
Barolin Rocks is a low, protruding, rocky point, 1 km south of which is a small, 50 m pocket sand beach (1508) in amongst a shoreline consisting of continuous basalt boulders.
Woongarra Marine Park in the Bundaberg region offers some of Queenslands most accessible shore diving including this site at Barolin Rocks. The rocky coastline provides you with plenty of colourful hard and soft corals to explore only a few metres from the shore.
Small to medium size species of reef fish, rays and some pelagics abound on the reef’s edge. You also have a very good chance of seeing nudibranchs, moray eels, turtles, sea snakes and wobbegong sharks on this dive.
Bargara is part of the string of holiday settlements that fringe the Bundaberg coast from Burnett Head south to Elliott Heads. Bargara is fringed by four beaches; Nielson Park to the north which is the home of the Bundaberg Surf Life Saving Club, the small Bargara Beach in the centre and Kellys Beach to the south, which consists of two parts and is also patrolled by lifeguards during peak periods.
