Media Release – STRESS-FREE TRAVEL TO FESTIVAL

 Forget parking woes, jump on the Childers Festival express!

Council’s Community Services portfolio spokesperson Cr Judy Peters said once again Bundaberg Regional Council would offer a bus service to and from Bundaberg and Bargara for the convenience of festival attendees.

“On Festival Day, Sunday, July 28, there will be three buses leaving Bundaberg from different locations,” Cr Peters said.

“We hope this will not only ease parking worries for those travelling to Childers by car, but allow people to get there who would otherwise be unable to attend.”

The cost for the return trip will be $15 for adults and pensioners and $8 for children aged 2 to 12.

Buses will leave from:-

  • Bundaberg Post Office (Bus Stop between Post Office & BRAG on Barolin Street) at 8am
  • Sugarland – leaves from Takalvan Street (outside Sugarland Shoppingtown) at 8am
  • Bargara – leaves from Council’s Bargara Service Centre, Hughes Road, at 7.45am

All buses will leave Childers for the return trip to Bundaberg at 3.30pm.

You can book online at www.childersfestival.com.au.

To pay in person, call into the Bargara Service Centre on Hughes Road or to Council’s Community Development Branch, Civic Arcade, 157 Bourbong Street (opposite the main Council office and adjacent to Central Newsagency). Payment by cash or credit card is required at the time of booking.

Cr Peters said for those that wished to drive, there would be free parking at the Childers Showground, with four shuttle buses collecting from designated locations in Childers
