I can officially say that Bundaberg has been my favorite marina thus far. It's not too big, there is only one bar where everyone goes for happy hour, it seems like everyone knows your name and you can feel at home. The Bundaberg Port Marina
is also part of the Clean Marinas Australia
and in keeping up with their nature of conservation and respect for the environment, Geoff Beyer, marina manager, offered us free berthage for a few days. The marina is super clean and makes a conscious effort to work with yachties instead of against them. We made friends throughout the marina, the cutest one being a jack russel terrior puppy and the nicest were Liz and John from the Gold Coast. Channel 7 dropped by and interviewed Chris & Irene and filmed the whole crew doing [menial] tasks, and put together a nice 4-minute clip that ran on the evening news all about OceansWatch and our projects, plans for the future, etc. All in all, a great few days. Thanks again, Geoff!
