Bundaberg Rum Distillery, Bundaberg

4.5
A low-slung complex on the banks of the Burnett River, Bundaberg Rum Distillery serves as the home and main administrative center for Queensland’s best-known rum. Bundaberg Rum was first produced in 1888--the company appointed its first tour guide in 1986--and has grown to become one of Australia’s most famous spirits. At the distillery, you can sample some of the company’s products, as well as gain insight into the distillation process through video presentations, tours, and historical displays. Plan my Bundaberg trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • Fantastic and informative tour with very friendly tour guide. Great history and pictorial displays to keep you occupied until the tour starts. Staff were very attentive during a fire alarm activation bringing out ice cold bottles of water and umbrellas to give some shade until we were allowed back in the buildings. Would go again if I was this way again.
  • Great tour around the distillery and a great selection of rum to try at good prices. The staff were informative and entertaining and a special shout out to Scott for selecting good music at the bar and "making sure" I had my second helping of rum. Thank you bundaberg!
  • The tour was fantastic, the guide was very clear, thorough and quite amusing. It cost $30 but you could basically get your money back through the 2 tasters you get at the end. Learnt about different flavoured rums and took a nice bottle home at a reasonable price. Worth a look if you like rum.
  • The tour is good fun and quite informative. The guides were friendly, informative and did a good-looking job looking after the group. A couple of parts of the tour did not appear to be wheelchair accessible. The bar and shop are well set up, allowing you to get an idea of the tastes of each available blend and make a good informed choice.
  • Whether you go for a tour through the distillery or you want to buy any of the famous Bundy rums, this place will not let you down and is 100% pure Ozi history. The tours are very informative and an eye opener for the history of Bundaberg. Recently they added a “make your own Bundaberg rum” experience. You get to taste numerous base flavours like charcoal, port, whiskey, sherry barrel ripened rum and then you can compose your own favourite blend out of them. All done with comprehensive guidance by enthusiastic staff. At the end you get two bottles of your own original blend with your own custom label and a master blender certificate. You can reorder your own blend with a special blend number. Must be booked in advance and price range is around $230. This includes the tour as well. 10 out of 10 from me.
