Distilled Wisdom

The Bundaberg Rum Distillery is in a part of town that was badly affected by floodwaters. Just a few streets away, I spoke to a lady who'd lost her rumpus room, kitchen, bathroom and all of her turf. But the Distillery was fine. If God exists, he/she must be a rum drinker.

A big thanks to Damien, my cohort from Bundaberg Broadcasters. He took time out from his work as breakfast announcer on HitzFM to show me around town, which assisted me no end.


  1. hahah! u know what, natural disasters somehow magically leave one building untouched. it's true, and, weird! like in the 2004 tsunami in Aceh, one mosque was left untouched while its surroundings were in complete ruins.

    some say its a holy miracle but then... its also chance and science. =)

  2. Next do the Tanqueray Gin distillery.

  3. " If God exists, he/she must be a rum drinker"

    which in one sense explains so much about the way the works.
