Overview

Under the careful and crafty eyes of our Distillers, Blenders and Bondsmen, millions of litres of Bundaberg Rum are aged to perfection here at the Bundaberg Rum Distillery. After protecting and ageing our rums since the 70s, the grand old guardian of the distillery Bondstore #7, has been given new life by being transformed into our immersive Bundaberg Rum Museum. Inside, you’ll walk through a series of 75,000 litre American White Oak Vats – the very same vats which have matured hundreds of thousands of litres of rum (after being emptied and rebuilt of course). Inside these vats live a sensory experience where you can see, touch and smell your way through our rich history in creating Australia’s Favourite Rum – Bundaberg Rum. Please ensure that you arrive at least 20-30 mins early for your tour, especially for the last tour of the day and during school holiday periods. Unfortunately Flammable devices; matches and lighters, as well as any item with a battery including; watches, cameras, and mobile phones, pose a fire hazard to the Distillery and cannot be taken on tour. Lockers are provided free of charge to store these items whilst inside the Distillery on tour. If you have a medically required device such as a hearing aid, give us a call in advance so we can make arrangements for you to bring those items with you.

I’m not much of a rum drinker to be honest, but if you’re in Bundaberg I figured you gotta do it. I was really impressed with the professional setup and the entertaining tour guides. The inclusion of a couple of free tastings was much appreciated!

Laid back but informative tour of the Distillery seeing all the equipment and stages. The Reception building at the start wit the history was really well done. As for the rum, you will have to taste it for yourself.

The tour guides were well scripted in their sales pitch for Bundy Rum. I think it would have been beneficial to talk through the sugar cane - alcohol process and also see some bottling or processing rather than pointing out pipes and vats only. The...More

Fun and interesting tour. The kids had fun too. Friendly and informative staff made us feel welcome. The free samples are fantastic. We also got new ideas on how to integrate rum into our cooking-yum! Make sure you bring a driver who doesn't drink rum!
