What to Expect


We strongly recommend booking your visit in advance to secure an available timeslot for you and your group. 



Ahead of your visit we ask that you: 

  • Please book online or over the phone (07 4348 3443) in advance and arrive 30-45 minutes ahead of your scheduled tour departure time. This will allow time for you to visit the Distillery Museum and for us to complete required documentation. Please ensure when booking online you include all members of your party in your booking, including infants.

  • If you, or anyone you’ve been in contact with, have been feeling unwell recently, please reschedule your visit for a later time.

  • Please consider if a visit to the Bundaberg Rum Distillery is right for you at this point in time. For vulnerable customers who are comfortable attending the premises, we advise that you take your own additional safety precautions. Bundaberg Rum cannot guarantee the safety of vulnerable guests.  

During your visit we ask that you: 

  • Follow the instructions and guidance of staff, who will be happy to answer any of your questions.

  • Adhere to the physical distancing guidelines which will be signposted and detailed in signage.

  • Keep your hands clean and if you need to cough or sneeze please cover your mouth/nose.

  • Please use contactless payment wherever possible, although cash will be accepted where necessary.

  • Lastly, but importantly, please enjoy your visit!
