A morning barbecue by the beach with the sound of waves crashing, or a sausage sizzle in the park with the kids playing nearby is the epitome of a great day out. But for many, this perfect family escape is often missing just one thing – good coffee. 

Perhaps that is why Nielson Park is one of the Region’s most popular barbecue spots (read more on page 14). It has it all, including access to delicious coffee, homemade cakes and slices at The Beach Mill, just meters away.

Tucked under the Bundaberg Surf Life Saving Clubhouse and with a beautiful ocean vista, The Beach Mill is a hidden gem that capitalises on its location. They offer takeaway coffee, food and a few treats to be enjoyed in the warm Winter sunshine. Take a stroll along the foreshore or grab a seat by the beach and take just a few minutes to unwind.

The Beach Mill is a sister location to the Windmill Café Bargara, which was named Queensland’s best hospitality and catering business at the state Tourism Awards two years running. The Windmill takes advantage of our beautiful climate, serving a la carte meals made with produce straight from local farms. Dine on the verandah or under beautiful shady trees; perfect for filtering the light and capturing the warmth on a beautiful Winter’s day.
