BUNDABERG - QUEENSLAND
Bundaberg is best known as the source of Australia's national sprit, Bundaberg Rum, distilled from the thousands of acres of sugar plantations which surround the town. "Bundy" as the golden beverage is affectionately known, was adopted as the outback spirit of choice many years ago and was warmed the hearts of thousands of 'ringers' in front of thousands of campfires for generations. Usually drunk with coke or dry ginger, it is to Aussie's what "Jack Daniels" is to Americans. Bundaberg is 53km. (32miles) east of the Bruce Hwy. between Maryborough and Gladstone, and is on the coast opposite the northern point of World Heritage Listed Fraser Island.
Bundaberg was the home of pioneer international aviator Bert Hinkler and a museum to his memory can be visited. Whales can be seen off shore between August and October and whale-watching tours operate, as do tours to the Turtle Rookery between November and February.
