Our Bundaberg campus is located on a green, tree-studded 23-hectare site on Bundaberg's southern outskirts, adjacent to the airport and only 6 kilometres from the Bundaberg city centre. The campus offers small class sizes, with very individually focused, high-quality educational service provision, across a wide range of university study courses.

Bundaberg campus has a friendly, supportive atmosphere that caters for students of all ages. You can study on-campus or online from home. Prior learning and work experience are taken into consideration and the University also offers enabling courses to help you prepare for tertiary education.

Situated on the Burnett River and at the Southern end of the Great Barrier Reef, Bundaberg is a thriving commercial and services centre boasting a great climate, friendly people, and a relaxed lifestyle with plenty of leisure options.   

Bundaberg is perhaps most famous for its rum distillery, but the economy features a much more diverse mix including agriculture, tourism, hospitality, retail, health, and services.
