From sugar cane to smooth spirits

Package – Sugar Shed and Rum Distillery Tour

Total tour time 1.5 hours

Sugar Shed Tour

This is a 1 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.

Rum Distillery Tour

This 30 minutes experience explains the distilling process at Sarina Sugar Shed, from the crushing of the cane to distilled cane spirit that creates our rum and liqueurs.

Tasting includes an exclusive selection of rum or rum liqueurs not available on our regular tour.

This is a great experience for dedicated rum lovers or those interested in finding out more about the rum distilling process from sugar cane juice to the finished product!

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.

Running daily with our 11am or noon (the noon tour includes the distillery tour first)

Bookings are strongly advised to avoid disappointment.
