Introducing Bundaberg

Despite boasting a sublime climate, coral-fringed beaches and waving fields of sugarcane, ‘Bundy’ is still overlooked by most travellers. Hordes of backpackers flock here for fruit-picking and farm work; other visitors quickly pass through on their way to family summer holidays at the nearby seaside villages.

This is the birthplace of the famous Bundaberg Rum, a mind-blowingly potent liquor bizarrely endorsed by a polar bear but as iconically Australian as Tim Tams and Vegemite.
