You're InviteD TO CELEBRATE 


The Pacific Terrific Crew crossing the finish line of The Great Pacific Race. 

In 1928, Bert Hinkler flew into Bundaberg ducking under both bridges (twice) in his Avro Avian landing in North Bundaberg to a hero's welcome.  It's time for Bundaberg to once again celebrate the achievements of one of its constituents who has achieved the impossible.

On the 6th of June Eleanor Carey set out from Monterey, California, with two team mates Cazz Lander and Megan Hoskin, representing Australia in The Great Pacific Race bound for Hawaii. The race would see them spend 62 days, 18 hours, and 36 minutes, crossing the Pacific Ocean in a small boat powered only by the human strength they applied to four oars. Eleanor would be quick to tell you that her aim wasn't to win, but to finish, and in doing so, to set multiple world records by rowing the Pacific Ocean.
