Bundaberg Legacy has once again showcased how this organisations enjoys nothing more than promoting community and having the opportunity to care for families of deceased and incapacitated veterans.

Bundaberg Legacy Ladies and carers journeyed to Hervey Bay recently for their bi-annual bus trip.

These ladies definitely know how to have a good day starting with morning tea at Insane Caffiene in Childers where plenty of delicious goodies were served.

It was then onto their destination of the Hervey Bay Historical Village and Museum in Scarness.

Covering 1.2 hectares, The Hervey Bay Historical Village and Museum has preserved some of the region’s amazing history and is a multi-award winning attraction.

The Legacy Ladies were happy to be introduced to some amazing displays including the Maheno ship that was washed ashore on Fraser Island by a cyclone in 1935, where the disintegrating wreck remains as a popular tourist attraction on the island.

Their step back in time finished, the ladies then lunched at the Hervey Bay Waterfront Restaurant.

Following this, drive George settled the ladies back on the coach for the pleasant return trip home with plenty of chatter, raffles and more to keep the ladies awake.

Thanks goes to the Legacy team who took good care of the Legacy Ladies throughout the day.

Legatees from this voluntary organisation remain committed to sharing how Legacy is supported by veterans, servicemen and women, and volunteers drawn from all walks of life.
