Tonnes of travellers come to Bundy to get fruit picking and packing work so that they can extend their visa?s. The problem is that so many people come for work that they often find it tough to get any more than a couple of days a week. Most of the hostels in town help you find work, be warned if you call them asking if there is work they are likely to say yes just so you stay with them. You often have to give a week?s rent up front and sometimes pay them $50 for finding you work. Childers is a similar story, both towns are good to start to job hunt, if you have your own vehicle you are free to find your own jobs and get to them yourself.
There are three main hostels in town, the best one I believe is Bundaberg Backpackers Lodge opposite the bus station. Cellblock is cool as the rooms used to be prison cells, but the place is dirty and needs a bit of renovation.

Stay ? Bundaberg Backpackers (07) 4152 2080

Do ? Go on the Rum Factory Tour, pick fruit, get drunk with guys with mullets and Ute?s.
