Bundaberg Barrel

Fraser Island & the Fraser Coast

Bundaberg's nonalcoholic ginger beer and other soft drinks aren't as famous as Bundy Rum, but they run a deserved close second. Visit the Barrel to take an audio tour of the small museum, learn the history and processes involved, taste 14 flavours and take a six-pack home with you (included in the tour price).
