Elliott Heads visit

Kite surfing

I went for a short visit to Elliott Heads today. It’s a sleepy village about 25km from Bundaberg at the mouth of the mostly tidal Elliott River.

It has one of the longest and most stunning stretches of sandy beach in the area, making it very popular with kite surfers.

It’s amazing how they zoom along at a rapid clip in both directions, regardless of where the wind is blowing from.

The tidal impacts are more noticeable at Elliott Heads than Bargara.

I don’t think it will be a sleepy village for much longer. A major housing estate has begun construction, which could see significant growth in the years ahead.

The Council has done a lot of work to landscape and beautify the village hub. It’s a lovely place to sit down and watch the world go by.
