Bargara is part of the string of holiday settlements that fringe the Bundaberg coast from Burnett Head south to Elliott Heads. Bargara is fringed by four beaches; Nielsen Park to the north, small Bargara Beach in the centre, which is the home of the Bundaberg Surf Life Saving Club, and Kellys Beach to the south, which consists of two parts and is also patrolled by the lifesavers. South of the creek mouth is the southern section of Kellys Beach (1504); a 400 m long, high tide sandy beach fronted to varying degrees by sand and rocks and ending at the boulder-strewn southern headland. This beach is backed by a narrow reserve, then a street and houses. There is good access to the length of the beach, with an informal beach boat launching area toward the southern end.
