  • My friends and I drove up here from Brisbane specifically because I'm so in love with this delicious beverage (that isn't available in the US - come on guys!) The distillery offers a couple tour options, one is self-guided through their museum while another takes you through the plant, inside one of their gigantic wooden casks, learning how they make the rum, where the inspiration for their product came from, and why it's considered a high-explosives site. Be aware that they will not let you bring any kind of electronic device with you into the distillery buildings as this place has burned to the ground twice in its history; they do have secure storage lockers where you can leave everything. This is probably the only part of the tour that sucks because you can't take photos. Regardless, during the tour they let you taste the raw molasses and at the end everyone gets two drinks from the bar. Audience participation counts during the tour, so be ready to shout a bit :-)
  • Really very good museum, spectacularly located in a series of old rum barrels. Put together by someone with a great sense of humor, but with plenty of hard info. The distillery tour was excellent and the rum tasting at the end was enjoyable, even though I don't like rum! (The chocolate and coffee rum liqueur is to die for). Highly recommended. Allow at least a couple of hours for the museum and the tour and wear sensible shoes.
  • Good news first. Great place to visit, recommend it to everyone heading to Bundaberg, we have been hooked on Royal Liqueur for more than 16 years, love this stuff straight and on ice cream etc. Now! We just want to know why this great flavoured rum has recently changed (not as good as it used to be) and now the last couple of bottles we've bought has more of a raw metho hint to it. Disappointed.
  • Nice tour of the distillery Not long enough Had a lovely rhum tasting at the end. Team very freindly Easy to park
  • The tour here is wonderful, with friendly and knowledgeable guides that are only too willing to answer any and all questions.
