Skybury's Australian Coffee Centre has been transformed into the ultimate farmgate experience. Labelled "Skybury Farmgate", the transformation is part of our long-term vision to further expand Skybury's coffee footprint, not only in Australia but internationally.

Skybury is Australia's largest exporter of home-grown coffee, which is an achievement we are incredibly proud of. Our coffee is enjoyed all around the world, from the street cafes of Paris, Berlin, London, Singapore,Tokyo and Madrid, to trendy coffee shops in Cairns and Port Douglas.

Skybury's restaurant and tours, will cease to operate from May 1, 2014. Skybury Farmgate will be situated within the foyer of the Australian Coffee Centre, while renovation and building works for a dedicated facility on the farm are underway.

Skybury Farmgate will be open to the public from 9am to 4pm weekdays (excluding public holidays) and will sell fresh produce direct from the farm as well as the full Skybury Coffee range. Takeaway coffee will also be available.

Keep a look out for Skybury's upgraded website featuring a great e-commerce platform for coffee sales and product information. It will be business as usual for all online, mail order and wholesale coffee sales.

Ok but maybe try others

Went here hoping to see and learn about coffee growing and processing. Pretty disappointed. Had a reasonable coffee over looking lovely views off the decking

Locals stopping in for lunch. Very expensive prices for very average food. Bought extra side salads for kids. When arrived was a garnish on our average main course. Complained on way out nothing was done. Have been many times before X will not return... AVOID...

Was recommended as a good place for a coffee when we were staying in Mareeba rather than having a coffee in town and we were not disappointed. Went there at least 3 times in a week. A good airy location on a hill, with a good view. Experience limited to coffee and small snacks. Visited the coffee display which was... More

When in the region 4 years ago, we ran out of time to stop here, so it was first on our list when planning our trip back here last month. The lunch menu was limited and expensive, with no options for kids ($9 for a ham and cheese sandwich is ridiculous). I ended up going out to the car and... More

Enjoyed a fabulous lunch with views to die for. The coffee was delicious and it was so interesting to see how it is harvested and roasted. This is a family run business and from what I can gather, it's the oldest running coffee plantation in Australia. Lovely people, wonderful country, well worth the scenic drive up from Cairns. Warm memories.

This was disappointing. In response to a brochure promising tours of the farm and processing of coffee - we arrived and found that these have been discontinued for some time. There was little sympathy for us. A tour had just arrived - and they were ushered into a theatre for a presentation. We paid $2.50 each to sit in another... More

Unfortunately their food from the restaurant doesn't meet the same standard. But at the end of the day you are likely going for one thing and If you're a coffee drinker the smells coming from the roasters at the door are irresistible.

I am still sipping my coffee whilst I type this review, although I should just look up and enjoy the view. But I felt like it was worth sacrificing the time, because it is such a lovely place! I am a big coffee lover and the cappuccino was nice and went well with the turkish roll with the tasty chicken/cheese/sundried... More

Very impressive looking building and gorgeous views. Unfortunately were not greatly very presently by staff - almost ignored in fact. Menu was very basic - mainly wraps and sandwiches. Really disappointed as we were told by many that the food here used to be amazing! We didn't eat because of the options so cant make any comment on the quality.
