More than just rum, it’s an experience for all the senses

More than just rum, it’s an experience for all the senses

Upon arriving at Australia’s largest craft distillery the scent of cane country wafts in the air. Sweet molasses, the hustle and bustle of a working sugar mill and maybe even the sound of a cane train arriving with a freshly cut batch of sugarcane in tow. Bundaberg Rum is in the beating heart of Bundaberg sugar cane country and the two go hand in hand with the fresh molasses (a by-product of cane production) carted over to the distillery to be made into this special rum that is proud to call Bundaberg home.

Experience the true spirit and culture of Childers Festival

Experience the true spirit and culture of Childers Festival

Guest Blogger Bio Jess Marsellos

Victoria might have the event that stops the nation, but closer to home we have the event that stops the Bruce Highway for a whole day. Welcome to the Childers festival, which has grown into a four day extravaganza, celebrating local wine and food, historical tours, sugar cane fires, arts, and lots of music with both local and visiting artists (hello, Kate Cebrano!) and even an opera by the lake. 

Enjoy a long dinner at a local winery, take a bus tour to visit the sugar mill and watch a cane fire burn bright against the dark sky, meander through the main street learning about those who have paved the way before us on these very streets and then enjoy the main event - festival day with food, music and entertainment roving the main street of Childers. Meet you there!
