    What to Expect
    From the moment you arrive your experience begins. The colour, aroma, taste, feel and sounds of the sugar shed and mill in full production creates a heady combination. You will love the experience.
    The miniature sugar processing & distilling equipment has been sourced from all over the world. Discover the growing, harvesting and crushing processes of sugar cane in a fully functioning miniature sugar mill. See how it is turned into a tantalising array of handmade and sugar-inspired boutique products.
    Enjoy a close-up, interactive and highly engaging guided tour, and, get to taste some yummy goodies as well! One of Mackay region’s most enjoyable attractions
    During your tour you’ll get to taste sugar in many forms… suck on a freshly cut and deliciously sweet sugar cane stalk straight from the paddock, then rich sticky molasses, full of complex earthy flavours, next you’ll try different crystallised forms of sugar before tucking into the product tasting with a range of delicious value added sweet treats.

    The sugar shed is great. The information was good for all ages. Shows you how the make the sugar and where it come from. Tour goes for an hour and get to taste sauces, chutney and alcohol at the end.

    Being a resident of Sarina I have visited this venue on many occasions. The facility is great to witness how sugar was and is extracted and the various products made during the process. A great tourist attraction to be shared.

    We found there are not so many tourist activities in the Mackay region. But a visit to the Sugar Shed in Sarina, just a few kilometers south of Mackay, is a nice outing for a few hours. In fact, Mackay is all about mining and...More
