This was not on our radar but saw the sign and stopped at the Tully information center to see about booking. It was about 10:30 in the morning and they told us the next tour was at 1:00 which was too late as we still had a ways to go to our next accommodation. The ladies at the info center... More

Our tour guide has been a sugar cane farmer all her life and we had the pleasure of sharing the tour with 2 sugar cane farmers who wanted to see what happened to... More

We wanted a local experience and we got it..... The 2 hour tour was informative and an awesome experience where we were able to walk through a working sugar mill. Remember to bring closed shoes and covered shirt to enter the mill. Note the only other working sugar mill that allows tours is 6 hours away so this is your... More

Sara was the name of our guide. Sara is a sugar cane farmer. Her knowledge was amazing and her tour was a highlight for us. This is a working mill and our tour showed us from the cane in the railway carts to the final sugar. Amazing!

Particularly in view of today's health and safety overkill . Ross the tour guide gave a Great overview from both the growers and company viewpoint. The tour commentary was great... More

We booked this tour which was a 3 hour drive from us. On the previous day we explained the distance we were traveling and asked them to call us if any problems. After a 3 hour drive we turned up, only to be told "sorry, we are not doing the tour today!" I explained that we had phoned yesterday and... More

Visiting Tully in northern Queensland call first at the well stocked and friendly staffed information centre. Purchase a ticket for one the three times daily tours of the huge nearby sugar mill. Built in 1924 this enormous edifice takes in 3 million tonnes of sugar cane annually in the June to December period - and crushes, boils and reduces the... More
