Bundaberg Rum Factory
Bundaberg is the only place in Australia where all the steps in sugar
production take place: growing, milling, refining and distilling. The
rum factory is east of the city centre, and it has tours where you

There is also a plantation house - Spring Hill House, that contains a
museum, a souvenir shop and a bar where you can sample the product.
