Bundaberg Rum Distillery Tour

A visit to Bundaberg, QLD, wouldn't be complete without a visit to the world-famous rum distillery. Bundaberg Rum (my personal favourite) was first distilled back in 1888 when a group of mates came up with a way to use the excess molasses resulting from the local sugar cane production. What they came up with was to become one of the most recognised rums in Australia. The first batch rolled off the production line in 1889, all 22,500 gallons of it.
