Experience first-hand the journey of sugarcane from field to raw sugar on this visually informative tour. Enjoy the spectacle of modern harvesting with a visit to a cane farm using “green cane harvesting”, before proceeding to the Isis Central Sugar Mill site. Here the process of crushing of the cane and the transformation from juice to sugar crystals will be explained at various locations around the mill. The tour will also include the exciting spectacle of a “cane fire”, the once traditional process used for pre-harvesting of the cane. The fully commentated tour will conclude in Childers with a BBQ dinner.

Please note: The cane fire is dependent on weather conditions at the time of the tour. Due to workplace, health and safety regulations, the tour will visit selected locations around the Isis Central Sugar Mill.
