Itinerary
Be collected from your accommodation in Bargara between 9.00am to 9.20am or Bundaberg between 9.30am to 10.00am. A great way to spend a morning is in the sub-tropical surrounds of the Bundaberg Botanic Gardens. A magnificent lake, creating a habitat attracting up to 114 species of birds, is centrepiece of the Botanic Gardens, while a wedding chapel, shaded picnic areas, themed boardwalks, Japanese gardens and children’s playground enhance the appeal of one of Bundaberg’s favourite lifestyle precincts. Here you can visit (at own expense) the Hinkler Hall of Aviation  and its exhibits including Hinkler House  and Fairymead House, the Bundaberg & District Historical Museum, the Australian Sugarcane Railway and the nearby Bundaberg Railway Museum or enjoy a meal (own expense) at Café 1928.

Depart at 12.15pm for the Bundaberg Barrel. Discover the secrets of Bundaberg Brewed Drinks with a variety of hands-on activities at the home of ginger beer. Take an amazing journey through
the True Brew Experience Tour. Use the interactive touch screens to see what happens to the humble ginger root as it’s crushed, brewed and fermented to make the world’s finest ginger beer. You can also sit back and enjoy the unique 15 minute 3D hologram adventure, ‘Doug’s Promised Land’ in the theatre. The Sampling Bar offers free product tastings of the entire range of brewed drinks. At last count there were 14 delicious flavours to try, including the famous Bundaberg Ginger Beer.

Arrive at the Bundaberg Rum Distillery for a 2.00pm Factory Tour. The Bundaberg Distilling Co. was born in 1888, when a band of ingenious Sugar Millers turned a horrendous Molasses surplus into fine Rum. Many have likened The BDC Distillery Experience to an expedition into the Congo, it is a journey into the unknown. The tour begins in the past with The BDC Story, then 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. 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. Return to your accommodation, arriving at Bundaberg accommodation between 3.30pm to 4.00pm and Bargara between 4.10pm to 4.30pm.
