Isis Central Sugar Mill and Cane Fire Tour

On July 25, 2019


Experience first-hand the journey of sugar cane from field to raw sugar on this visually informative tour. Enjoy the spectacle of modern harvesting as you visit a cane farm using "green cane harvesting", before undertaking a visit to the Isis Central Sugar Mill to witness the crushing of the cane and the transformation from juice to sugar crystals.
The next stop will include the exciting spectacle of a now rare "cane fire", the once traditional process used for pre-harvesting of the cane. (Please note that the cane fire is dependent on weather conditions at the time of the tour).
The tour will return to Childers and conclude with a barbecue prepared by the local service club.
With expert commentary throughout, this tour is bound to be a highlight for anyone interested in this important local product and industry.
The tour departs Crescent Street car park, Childers at 3.45pm or Riverside Parklands, Bundaberg at 3pm.
