Return to Bargara for Bundy Rum Tour

Returning to Bargara (east of Bundaberg) we booked into the Bargara Beach Caravan Park for just 2 nights. The reason for this was so that we could do the famous Bundaberg Rum Distillery Tour, as it was closed due to COVID19, on our 1st visit back in August (check-out the blog from our earlier visit).

This is a really great tour and there’s so much to learn about how Bundaberg Rum is made and the history of the distillery.

Some history

Bundaberg Rum originated because the local sugar mills had a problem with what to do with the waste molasses after the sugar was extracted (it was heavy, difficult to transport and the costs of converting it to stock feed were rarely worth the effort). Sugar men first began to think of the profits that could be made from distilling and the Bundaberg Distilling Company began its operations in 1888 – find out more on the Bundaberg Rum Showcase website.
