A number of new service stations are planned across Bundaberg, Woodgate, Millbank and Childers, some requiring homes and buildings to be demolished, and others bringing additional business with them. Here’s what we know.

In 2010, Bundaberg‘s population was 91,400. In 2022, that number has ballooned to 100,000 – an increase of 9.5 per cent.

It is an ever-growing city; its growth hastened by a pandemic that prompted many people to leave the heavily hit southern states and head north.

So it is no surprise that more service stations are being built when fuel is such a universal need.

We take a look at some of the most recent petrol station proposals for the Bundaberg region, and the exciting fast food outlets that will accompany some of them.

Woodgate service station

Application type: Material change of use

Location: Frizzells Road, Woodgate

Status: Pending

A developer has proposed a service station at Woodgate, near Childers.

The proposal is for two dual bowsers and a canopy, with hours of operation 6am-7pm, seven days a week.

According to documents lodged with Bundaberg Regional Council, the service station would have three workers on-site during operation and would be a “modern commercial structure finished in corporate colours”.

The application was submitted to the council on July 18, 2022.


A new service station is planned for Takalvan St.

Milbank service station

Application type: Material change of use and advertising device

Location: 45 Warrell and 85 Takalvan St, Millbank

Status: Pending

An application has been lodged with Bundaberg Regional Council for a new service station to be built on part of Takalvan and Warrell Sts in the suburb of Millbank.

Application documents reveal the service station intended to include a pylon sign for advertising, which would be 10m high, and 3.45m wide – meaning the sign would be 3m higher and have an area 5.75 times larger than those “anticipated” for the area.

The council requested that the pylon sign be “significantly reduced in size” in order to fall in to line with similar nearby structures.

The Takalvan St servo, if approved, will sit beside Supercheap Auto.


Another Pie Face is planned for East Bundaberg, as part of a United service station.
