Bundaberg Suburbs


Bundaberg North, on the north side of the Burnett River, was the place where Bundaberg's European settlement began. Its early history is outlined in the entry on Bundaberg. Until the construction of a railway bridge over the river in 1890-91 communication between the two towns was by ferry crossing. The opening of the railway also provided for a pedestrian walk way on the bridge.
