Owner description: 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.

After reading a full page advert. In Discover Atherton Tablelands for this place I drove 1.5 hours for the tour. It didn't exist. Essentially, a coffee shop set in a parched landscape. Just below the balcony is a stagnant pool, not the most inviting outlook. Positives - very friendly young Estonian woman serving, building is rather spectacular, coffee is good... More

Its been a few years since we visited this place, but we loved it when we did! The view and surrounding area was spectacular! Great destination to drive to for a view and coffee and pastry too!

The Skybury guide was a friendly man, and he showed us around the plantation.Later we had lunch and the chicken caesar salad was... More

Bought 500g pack of Skybury plunger coffee at a resort in Port Douglas. Upon opening the pack back in Cairns it smelt very stale and the resulting coffee was undrinkable. We tried making stronger, weaker etc but everything was just awful. There was no batch number, use-by date etc on the pack. I Emailed Skybury to advise of stale product.... More

Dear Geoff Thank you for taking the time to post a review on Tripadvisor. We are very sorry that the resort sold you stale coffee. It has been over 18 months since we sold coffee to the resort in question and they have clearly done the wrong thing by you. It is the nature of our business that once we... More

This is out of town and the views from the balconies are amazing, sadly the rest of it isn't really as good as it could be. The lady who served us was very pleasant but the young lass that made the coffees certainly didn't have true barrista qualifications. There was no sampling of different strengths of coffees, we had to... More

We made the journey out to the plantation expecting a real coffee experience. Yes we had an experience but not of the positive kind. The young barista was very helpful and informative. It all went downhill from there. The coffee maker (she was NOT a barista!) couldn't explain why the huge cup of coffee was $5 compared to a takeaway... More

Had a perfect lunch here last year. The view is spectacular. Returned again with visitors from interstate & overseas only to find it closed on the weekends. Very strange for a tourist business in North Queensland. This review doesn't allow me to submit without a rating, but I hope I can warn others from going there on a weekend only... More

We had tried the other coffee places in Mareeba so the brochure we had for this place looked really good. Building is beautiful & the views are wonderful but there is where the story ends. They have a big restaurant but its not open. You can only get toasted sandwiches 4 kinds for lunch. Coffee was nothing special. No displays... More
