Baffle Creek is a region of natural beauty, subtropical tranquillity, fascinating history and great opportunity, with vast pristine waterways, wetlands, coastline and coral reefs. With an abundance of native terrestrial, aquatic and marine life, you'll experience wildlife you many not even know exists.

If fishing, boating or canoeing is your passion for adventure and discovery, the extensive estuary and tributaries of the Baffle Creek River System, Lake Monduran, Beaches or Coral Reefs will satisfy your spirit for adventure.

The Baffle Creek Catchment Area is a patchwork of national parks, conservation parks and state forests. The parks provide habitat of eucalypt forests, subtropical rainforest, dry rainforest and littoral rainforest for a great diversity of wildlife species. All these natural wonders can provide countless avenues to explore and enjoy a great holiday adventure.

Baffle Creek is one hour north of Bundaberg between the Discovery Coast and Coral Coast regions of Wide Bay in Southeast Queensland, Australia. The Discovery Coast so named for in May 1770 Lieutenant James Cook began his approach, near Baffle Creek, to the Queensland coast. Cook discovered a large bay, Bustard Bay 40 km north of Baffle Creek, in which the Endeavour anchored. This is the first place in Queensland where Cook landed, along with a party of men including botanist Joseph Banks. The Coral Coast, you guessed it, is related to The Great Barrier Reef. The reef is situated just off our coastline, as are some terrific islands such as Lady Musgrave, Lady Elliot and Heron Island.

The Baffle Creek Catchment Area encompasses a vast area, 3000 km square, including numerous rural townships and communities, situated down by the Riverside and in the Hinterland. In the hills of the Hinterland, fossickers are known to discover gemstones. However, the local economy isn’t based on rocks but on beef and dairy cattle, fruit and nut tree crops, small crops and recently eucalypt plantations and aquaculture.

Our climate throughout the seasons varies little compared with the rest of Australia. Winters are warm and sunny with few rainy days. In summer, temperatures usually go no higher than 31 Degrees Celsius and spectacular thunderstorms deliver cooling rain. Humidity rarely exceeds 60% and with approximately 280 days of sunshine each year, our climate is just perfect. View a Map of the Baffle Creek Region.
