Description:

Under the careful and crafty eyes of our Distillers, Blenders and Bondsmen,...

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 visited the distillery many years ago and when visiting Bundaberg again I had to take my travel partners back to this iconic attraction. The tour seemed a little shorter that it used to be, but it is still interesting to hear the history and how they use the sugar can and the waste products and have extended the range... More

Did not have time for the tour (heard it was well worth it though,..) but went into the gift shop for some sampling and purchase merchandise. Walked out with a three pack of bundy liquors. Lady that... More

We recently did the Distillery Tour and Museum walk through. Was and exceptional museum with plenty of knowledge, displays and artifices explaining the history of the Bundy Rum factory and history of Bundaberg itself. Our tour was also very informative of the process, history and future direction of the company. Our guide 'Macca' was brilliant!!! She managed to bring together... More

We loved visiting this iconic place! Was here about 30 years ago and there have certainly been a few changes since then. The museum is really a great place to start your tour learning all about the history of the distillery and about Bundaberg. Our tour host was most knowledgeable and kept the tour very interesting and enjoyable. You will... More

I am not a Bundy Rum drinker, but thought it was worth visiting while I was in Bundaberg. I was really surprised by the quality of the tour and staff were great. Plenty of information and not overly long, has a good balance. Really good tour, worth the time. FYI found a Bundy drink I like (Bundy Red)..... :o)
