We recently had a photo competition and here is a selection of the entries depicting life in the Burdekin Region where you will find friendly residents and a laid-back atmosphere.
The Burdekin Bridge, locally known as the Silver Link, is an iconic structure that spans the mighty Burdekin River.
By far the district’s greatest claim to fame is its fishing. The Burdekin is well-known for its barramundi, mudcrabs, other estuary species and off-coast reef fishing.
Burdekin farmers also produce the biggest and sweetest sugar cane in Australia, as well as mangoes, melons, capsicums, zucchinis, tomatoes and many other small crops.
