Moore Park is a small holiday settlement 21 km north of Bundaberg. The settlement has a store, caravan park and limited facilities for tourists. It is located on a 20 km long, gently curving beach (1492) that runs from the dynamic mouth of the Kolan River to Barubbra Island at the mouth of the Burnett River. The Moore Park section is 14.5 km long, faces north-east and ends at the mouth of Croome Creek. The entire beach is backed by a 3 to 5 km wide beach to foredune ridge plain, which represents a substantial build-out of the shoreline over the past 6000 years, with much of the sediment coming from the Burnett River. The Moore Park Surf Life Saving Club was established in 1954. It is located in the foreshore reserve in the centre of the settlement, immediately north of the caravan park. The beach receives waves averaging 0.5 to 1 m. It has a moderately steep high tide beach, with a low, flat bar exposed at low tide. Rips run across the bar when waves exceeds 0.5 m.
A relatively safe beach when waves are 0.5m or less. Higher waves will induce rips, particularly toward low tide, and strong easterly winds and waves will cause a current to run north along the beach.
Usually a low beach break that is best at mid to low tide. Low swell occasionally reaches the beach, improving the quality of the waves.
Most fishers head down to the Croome Creek mouth, 3km south of the town. Otherwise the beach is best at mid to high tide.
A quiet little settlement with adequate facilities for visitors, with a long, natural beach and a patrolled section.Read less
