Summer Getaway For Busy Adults

You might want to bring a designated driver for this one... or join a Bundy Drinks Tour!

DAY ONE

10AM

LAZY BRUNCH

Start your holiday off on the right foot, or more so, the right side of the bed with a well deserved sleep in. Make your way to Eleven Acres for a lazy brunch of 'Garlic & Herb Roasted Meadowvale Mushrooms' and '11 Acres Buttermilk Waffles' before beginning a day of boozy fun.

 

11:30AM

LET THE FUN BE-GIN

Is gin and tonic your drink of choice? Why not head to the family-owned distillery and brewery Kalki Moon and try their award-winning gin, vodka and liquors? Enjoy a FREE tour and tasting with the owners and visit their cellar door for some incredible local drinks to gift your friends and family. They also have a brand new locally brewed beer you can try too!

 

12:30PM

SEAFOOD AND EAT IT

Freshly caught local prawns sound like a good idea, right? Come and dine at Grunske's By The River Seafood Restaurant and Market with seafood being caught fresh and local daily. Grab a seafood platter for two or go healthy with a 'Prawn, Mango & Honey Walnut Salad'.

 

2PM

THE SPIRIT OF RUM

It's our most iconic spirit and a must do for any visitor – rum-drinker or not. Explore the world-famous Bundaberg Rum Distillery on the Bundaberg Rum Distillery Visitor Experience tour. Learn the story behind Australia's favourite spirit before enjoying a tasting of the golden liquids you've just learnt about and explore the retail space.

 

3:30PM

IN-CIDER EXPERIENCE

Queensland's only dedicated cider house, Ohana Cider House & Exotic Fruit Winery, has 8 epic ciders on tap, exotic fruit wines and liqueurs made from Queensland apples and local ingredients. Come sample their incredible (and award-winning) products on a tasting paddle and take home an array of quirky local ciders.

 

5PM

RIVERSIDE FEASTING

Finish up your day with dinner under the stars at Riverfeast, Bundaberg's favourite outdoor night market. Enjoy a cocktail or local cider from the Grinners Bar with a woodfired pizza or a mix of delicious dishes to share.

 

7PM

CHECK-IN

Check-in to your accommodation ay Burnett Riverside Hotel  alongside the beautiful Burnett River, just a short walk to the CBD. Head downstairs to the H2O Restaurant and Bar for a nightcap and a sneaky dessert (insiders tip: try the Espresso Martini Brule!).

 

DAY TWO

8AM

THE MORNING AFTER

You might be a little foggy from your busy day yesterday so get up and take a stroll along the riverside parkland's walking path, accessible from your hotel. Head into the CBD after your walk and pick up a coffee or milkshake from one of the Earls Court cafes, Alowishus Delicious or Nourish Café because you're about to hit the road to the storybook town of Childers for some wine tasting.

 

10AM

CALORIFIC KICKSTART

Is your tummy grumbling? Stop into the Aussie-Canadian fusion café that is Mollydookers Café & Bar at Apple Tree Creek. Don't count your calories here (holiday calories don't count anyway) and enjoy maple bacon, pancakes, waffles, French toast, bagels, brekky poutine and so much more deliciousness to get you through the day.

 

11AM

THE SECRET SPOT

Making wine from their own beautiful vineyard, Vintner's Secret Vineyard is a beautiful spot to stop and sip some wine. Enjoy an elegant tasting before choosing your favourite glass to stroll through the working vineyard with as you soak in the summer sun. Be sure to visit the gift and gourmet shop and check out the local art on display.

 

12AM

OVER THE HILL

Make your final stop Hill Of Promise Winery, a boutique winery with a strong Sicilian heritage. Meet the owners Mary & Terry for an engaging story of their rich multicultural history and a tipple. Grab a bottle for your next dinner party and enjoy a picnic lunch before hitting the road and heading home.
