Beenleigh Rum

The Beenleigh Rum Distillery was built in 1884. It is Australia's oldest distillery that is still working today. Francis Gooding and John Davy were given a property in 1861 which they named Beenleigh. They planted sugar cane and built a sugar mill which was called Beenleigh Sugar Mill. River steamers were the only transport between Beenleigh to Brisbane over a lot of years. The last that came to Beenleigh was way back in 1868
