    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Sarina Sugar Shed, Field of Dreams Parklands, Sarina, Queensland 4737 Australia

    Your Guided Tour takes around 1 hour and includes a movie in the theater, a tour of the cane plantation and outdoor display area, then indoors to see the miniature mill in action. A touch of history, a little about farming innovation and a demonstration of the magical way that sugar is made, all topped off with a tasting treat – fairy floss for the kiddies, a taste of our home made chef’s gusto sauces and a nip of liqueur, schnapps, vodka or ginger beer for the adults.
    There’s lots to keep you entertained whatever your age.

    On the day I visited I was the only person on the tour but the leader still took me on board and provided the full experience. It meant that I had ample opportunity to ask questions and complete all of the tastings. Would be suitable for all ages, with plenty for kids to watch

    Vanessa - Thank you for your kind words and feedback. Our Tour Guides offer fantastic experience and local knowledge of the Mackay region and Australian Sugarcane industry. We do offer our visitors umbrella's to assist with our Tropical QLD sunshine - yet it is this also creates an understanding of the reality faced by our cane-cutters from past years of what conditions they would have experienced. We are glad you enjoyed your experience and taste testing

    We visited the Sugar Shed and attended the tour, which we found disappointing due to the lack of customer service the tour guide gave. *Although it was informative, we felt it was rushed; *The tour guide was rude and condescending to the clients; *It would have been great if

    Annika D. Thank you for your informative feedback of your recent Sugar Shed experience. Our Sugarcane industry showcase is a Hall of Fame inducted Tourism facility in both the local Mackay and also Queensland region. We do not compare ourselves to other Theme Park orientated facilities and to provide further perspective - our ticket price is comparable to many other similar tourism attraction facilities in Queensland. We also receive positive feedback regarding the Tour guide interaction and tours on a daily basis and further apologise for that your experience was not enjoyable or to your expectation. Our team will review our Customer Service interaction further with our focus on Continuous Improvement.

    Thank you for your feedback and input regarding sugarcane industry in Cuba. Back in the old days here locally - our cane cutters could consistently handle 20+ tonne per day and even reach 50+ tonne per day. We are happy to help educate you in your learning & knowledge of the Australian Sugarcane industry and 150+ years of local heritage of Sugar & Rum production.

    While travelling you see so many Sugar Cane fields, you just want to know what happens to it and how it's processed. It is a very intimate tour and you don't have to walk through a huge factory area to find out how all the process works. Bec gave us a fantastic talk watched a
