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.

We had a great afternoon, we sat outside in the outdoor area relaxing with a tray of samples before taking a tour through the distillery. The history is fascinating. As a Bundy drinker my husband nearly bought out the gift shop, it has great deals!...More

A group of eight of us arrived on a Sunday for the tour and we’re all thoroughly impressed. The tastings were generous and the tour very informative and a laugh. Highly recommend this if you are in Bundaberg

No, the distillery tour includes tasting. The museum tour is used as the first part of the distillery tour. Not sure if you can get tastes there too.
