The Rum Factory has spent a lot of money on a totally new look over the past years and all for the better! The tour is informative and interesting and the tasting at the end of the tour is held in a nice relaxed atmosphere.

This is probably a must see in Bundaberg. The tour is interesting for both rum drinkers and non-rum drinkers. They have recently upgraded their retail facilities. I highly recommend their liqueurs for non-rum drinkers.
