In 2024, every baby born in Queensland will receive a free book!

Distributed through the bounty bag network, the children's book, One Remarkable Reef will be available to new parents across Queensland.

Where can I get my bounty bag? 

The new parent bounty bag is usually given to parents before the baby is 48 hours old. It contains product samples for a new mum and bub, plus advice, information and support. These bags, distributed by midwives and bounty representatives in hospitals nationally, are jam-packed with information and products aimed at this exciting life stage. 

The bounty bags can be collected through most maternity hospitals, pharmacies, GPs, and obstetrician and ultrasound clinics. Check out the full list of Pharmacy stockists.
