Bundaberg Qld

Bundaberg Ginger Beer

Bundaberg!!! What can I say about Bundaberg. Well!! we all know what it is famous for. And it did not disappoint. Sunday we did the Touristy bit and did a tour of the Bundaberg Distillery. Afterwards we tried their famous Royal Rum Liqueur. Very nice!! Goes down smoothly with cream a little like Baileys but better. A subtle taste of chocolate, vanilla & coffee .A few bottles made their way home with us. Although I was limited to a few sips as one of us had to be sensible & drive home. We also visited the Bundaberg Gingerbeer factory. I didn't know there were so many different flavours. I selected peach, lemon and Burgundy to take home. The Burgundy is similar to creaming soda. We arrived on Saturday and drove over to Woodgate beach and caught up with Larry & Donette and Doug & Di. We then set up camp near the lions park right at the end of the runway for the airport. Planes flew right over us.

Monday we drove out to Bargara Beach.

Bargara Beach note the volcanic rocks

The beach is made up of volcanic rocks rather unusual but quite pretty. On the way home we brought some of the local fresh fruit and vegies from the farms. We tasted the most sweetest, tastiest strawberries I have ever had the pleasure to salivate. Rockmelons was the next on the list. We pulled up stumps on Tuesday and are now stationed in Hervey Bay.
