Create an itinerary including Bundaberg Rum Distillery
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 Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • Oh of course the rum, but the tour guide Danny was next level. Very informative with an amazing sense of humour. Would highly recommend.

  • Unfortunately we didn't get the chance to do the tour. However, the shop front as really good and the staff are so helpful. Some awesome things to look at.

  • A pleasant experience and great for either the full tour or simply a short stop and a quick drink. There's a beer garden area with a bar outside or a tasting experience inside next to the shop. Dogs are not allowed in the outside area unfortunately which is a shame. It did take some time to be served outside, despite no queues, but the flavoured rum was delicious and the staff were friendly.
  • Such a great place. The tour is full of information, history and so much detail of the distillary process. I don't drink Rum, but liked the environment and decoration. The cafe presents nice sitting arrangement using barrels! Capturing photo with the giant bottle of Rum is a must!
  • This is a must-do in the Bundaberg region. Coops was an amazing tour guide who was enthusiastic, funny, and entertaining. It's clear that people love what they do here! The tour includes the museum, a tour of the distillery and 2 tastings with mixers - so it's a fantastic value. Arrive early so you can visit the museum before your tour (you can't visit it after). We booked ahead but there were some people who were able to walk in.
  • Oh this was a great tour! Guides were fantastic and made it funny yet informative. I wish the shop had more 'exclusive' items for sale (things you could only buy there). Book online for a 5% discount 💰Overall - Brilliant!
  • Love this place! We had done the distillery tour before, this time I had wanted to do the Blend your Own Experience. I stuffed up and did not go to book early enough - missed out! It still did not stop me from ducking in there and picking up a couple of bags full of items. The key here is to buy items that are available at the distillery only - or the big multi bottle packs. That is where the value is! You can buy a couple of shots to try there before you buy, but it's not magic alcohol - road rules still apply, get a driver! I could really see a proper bar here, the real deal. A bit tiki, a bit Bundy - but I suppose there's a million reasons why it can't happen. The museum is great, do it. The tour is even better. Can't wait to blend my own!
