Hummock Lookout

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Situated off the road to Bargara is the low-lying volcanic remnant known as “The Hummock” which, although only 96 metres above sea-level, offers visitors good views over the whole area. The ocean is visible to the east while, to the west, the sugar fields can be seen encircling the city with the smoke stacks of the Bundaberg Distillery and Mill on the horizon. Watch the moon rise over the ocean as the sun sets over the land.

The Hummock holds an important place in local indigenous history. The Taribelang Aboriginal people were the first humans to inhabit this area. Their ‘burning mountain’ is the ‘Sloping Hummock” of today. There is a large Aboriginal art mural at the site which depicts the violent story of Paddys Island at the time of European settlement. Paddy’s Island can still be seen from the Hummock lookout today.
