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.

We enjoyed the tour of the distillery very much. The tour guide obviously enjoyed her work and was proud of the company she worked for. We were lucky in that the number on the tour was down ( a very hot day!) so there was not a problem with hearing her. The granddaughters (10 and 12) found it interesting.

Much improved on the old bond store and tour. The display wall of bottles is very impressive. Plenty of space to relax as well in covered area.

I booked the distillery tour a while in advance as a Christmas present and I'm so glad we did. We attended on a weekday so it wasn't as busy as it probably is over the weekend. When we arrived you're allowed to go through the museum at your own pace before a tour guide comes to get you. I believe... More

Have not been for a while and happy to find the new very professional visitor center thought the cost of museum was quite high but they give you two large samples

Full of history, there isn't really anything like experiencing Bundy Rum at its place of birth. Staff were incredible, the tour engaging, ultimately everything combined to make for a great day out. Recommended that everyone do this tour once in there time.

From the welcome given by receptionist Nadine, the informative and humorous tour with Macca to the friendly bar staff this attraction was great. Well worth the visit fee which includes two tots of the rum of your choice or a soft drink. We went round in a group of around 24 which was about right. As a non rum drinker... More
