Bundaberg Rum Distillery has won a national tourism award.

Bundaberg Rum Visitor Experience has won gold in the Tourism Wineries, Distilleries and Breweries category at the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards.

After the recent $8.5 million Visitor Experience renovation, Bundaberg Rum has worked hard to grow its domestic and international footprint and are a major driver in the growth of Bundaberg as one of Australia’s most exciting emerging destinations.

Accepting the award in Canberra last night, Bundaberg Rum marketing and experience manager Duncan Littler said he was proud of what his team had achieved.

“This is amazing; look we are incredible proud of the business we run up in Bundaberg,” he said.

“But even more so, we’re proud of the amazing team that we have to help deliver our customer experiences every single day.

“What’s great is that every single one of them has played such a key role in us winning this award and I know the team are going to be back in Bundy celebrating with some of the world best rum in their hands right at the moment.”

Duncan said it was nice to be recognised but it was everyone’s efforts that helped make travelling around Australia so great.

“We all need to take a big extended break and tour around our own backyard,” he said.

Winning silver in the Tourism Wineries, Distilleries and Breweries category was Bangor Vineyard Shed, followed by Bright Brewery which won bronze.

Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort also won silver in the eco-tourism category at the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards, and The Windmill Café was nominated in the Tourism Restaurants and Catering Services category.
