Discover the growing and harvesting of the sugar cane, complete a hunt for the critters that live in our sugar cane patch. Enter our miniature sugar mill to see how sugar cane is crushed, sample deliciously sweet sugar cane juice straight from our miniature mill - 'Bill the Mill Junior". Our stickers help the kids understand the machines that work in the process from turning juice into sugar. Touch and feel the different stages of the production from the bagasse to the sugar, taste the molasses!

During your tour (approximately 45 minutes), receive a free info sheet at the end, (great for school projects) and a quick fun quiz to help keep the young ones engaged - they are guaranteed to learn something! Finally, everyone gets to a chance to taste our non-alcoholic ginger beer brewed onsite, and freshly spun fairy floss for big and little kids!

Note - Adults at kids prices, however adults ticket does NOT include the full tasting. This can be purchased separately as a tasting session if desired. All tours are conducted in our working mini replica mill at the Sarina Sugar Shed, our machinery replicates the process of a full-scale mill, and we do not offer tours to the full-scale Plane Creek Mill who are situated next door to us.
