About the Generator

Our History

Founded in Bundaberg in 2016, The Generator was first established on the packing floor of the Bundaberg Post Office. In October 2019, we expanded to a second space in the historical Elliot’s Pharmacy building in Gympie.

History of the Clock Tower

The Generator is proud to operate out of a building that has always remained a centrepiece of connectivity and communication for the Bundaberg region.

1879 — The New Bundaberg Post Office was erected on the Corner of Barolin and Bourbong street.
1886 — First telephone exchange opened.
1890 — Existing Post Office and telegraph building opened at a cost of £6000.
1893 to 1925 — The top floor of the Bundaberg Post Office (The Generator’s Mainspace) housed the Australia terminal for the under-sea telecommunications cable that ran via New Caledonia. This laid the foundation for connecting Bundaberg to the world.
