As part of your introduction to the Bundaberg area, we have organised a bus trip to the Bundaberg Rum Distillery. This venue was given the seal of approval by Prince Charles when he visited about 12 months ago. The cost of entry into the venue will be covered in the fee for the trip. There will be time for a rum tasting at the end of your tour. We will also be having a drive around the area with full commentary about the agriculture and some history of the area. You will have panoramic views of the area from our one and only hill, the Hummock. Lunch will be at the East Bundaberg Sports Club at your own expense.
