Bundaberg Rum Distillery


The Bundaberg Distilling Co. was born in 1888, when a band of ingenious Sugar Millers turned a horrendous Molasses surplus into fine Rum.

125 years later, more than 85,000 people visit the BDC Bondstore each year, and not a single one leaves disappointed. Some don't leave, they stick around and soak up the atmosphere of the Bundy Bar, sampling sweet rum at the source.

There are two tour options:

BDC Story Self Guided Tour - Touch panels and interactive visual displays bring over 125 years of crafting rum to life. You can make this tour as long or as short as you want.

BDC Distillery Experience Guided Tour - Your tour guide will lead you to the swirling wells of molasses, mysterious processes of fermentation and distillation, around to the grand Barrelhouse where you walk through an historic oak vat the size of a small house, and then finally to the bottling plant.

Adult guests aged 18 years and over (LPA+) are also invited to two samples in the Bundy Tasting Bar at the conclusion of the tour.

You can visit the retail store even if you do not go on a tour.

East Bundaberg Water Tower


The East Water Tower is a must visit as it is believed to be the only circular brick tower in Queensland. Given Bundaberg's relatively flat terrain, this tower is the perfect example of late 19th century technology - using the increased water pressure provided by the tower in order to allow the reticulated water system to flow through efficiently.

The East Water Tower demonstrates Bundaberg's development as a major regional city serving one of Queensland's most significant sugar growing districts

The East Bundaberg Water Tower is only a couple of minutes walk from Lake Ellen Heritage Hub..

Bundaberg War Memorial


Bundaberg's WWI memorial has the distinction of being unveiled twice - the soldier statue, imported from Italy, had not arrived in time for the ANZAC Day 1921 memorial unveiling and another ceremony was held a year later.

Designed by Bundaberg architect FH Faircloth and contracted to Anselm Odling of Sydney, it is also one of the most expensive WWI monuments in Queensland, costing ?1,650.

The marble digger stands on top of column; a pedestal below bears the names of 1 Boer War casualty and 277 men who died in the WWI conflict.

Commemorative plates to later conflicts have been added to the pedestal.

An imposing 11.5 metres high, it stands on an island of neatly striped grass and concrete, creating a traffic roundabout in the sugar cane city's main thoroughfare, its height complementing the adjacent post office tower.
