The Bundaberg Barrel to Fairymead Sugar Museum

Situated along Bargara Road in the east, you can learn all about Bundaberg Ginger Beer's origins, ingredients, bottling and packaging and explore a range of activities before you enjoy a sampling of different flavours of soft drink.

Hinkler Hall of Aviation
Fairymead Sugar Museum to Hinkler Hall of Aviation

Without sugar cane there would be no rum and potentially no Bundaberg and your next sweet stop is at the Fairymead House Sugar Museum. Situated on Thornhill Street at the Bundaberg Botanical Gardens it houses photographs and memorabilia of the region's sugar industry and tells the tale of the development of the industry, technology and milling. One of the greatest success stories in the Bundaberg history books is that of aviator Bert Hinkler and you can learn all about him at the Hinkler Hall of Aviation along Mount Perry Road. This attraction celebrates pioneer solo aviator Bert Hinkler through a soaring exhibition hall, featuring various multi-media exhibits, a flight simulator, the spectacular 'Globe Theatre', five aircraft and the historic Hinkler House.
