The Tour of The Tropics

Sugar Shed Tour

This is a one-hour fully guided tour. The tour starts with a welcome and introduction, followed by a short walk outdoors, past our sugar cane patch and historic machinery.

Your guide will take you on a brief historic journey into the pioneering days of the sugar cane farmers in the Mackay region. Then it is back indoors, into our mill and distillery area, where your guide will take you through the process of extracting juice from fresh sugar cane.

The tour finishes with tastings of our liqueur products, our chutneys, relishes and sauces, our non-alcoholic ginger beer, and our freshly-spun fairy floss.

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.

We run four guided tours per day:

9.30am, 11.00am, 12.30pm, 2.00pm.

Bookings are strongly advised to avoid disappointment.

Note – Animals are not permitted on tours (exception of assistance dogs).
