In case it wasn’t already obvious, Bundaberg is the home of Aussie favourite Bundy Rum. The Bundaberg Distilling Company was accidentally started back in 1888 when a bunch of sugar millers looked for a way to use an excess surplus of molasses. These days, apart from producing the world famous alcoholic beverage, the distillery offers guided tours for fans and curious visitors looking to see how the distilling process works. Learn about the history of the company with samples aplenty along the way. The company is located in Bundaberg east just a short drive off the Princess Highway.
