Sugar Mills - View

The Burdekin is home to 4 sugar mills; Invicta, Kalamia, Inkerman and Pioneer. Although they can not be accessed for internal viewing they provide a great photo opportunity!

Wilmar Sugar have launched a virtual mill tour that lets you step inside a working sugar mill, from the comfort of your own home. You can take a journey through the sugar-making process and see how sugarcane is transformed into raw sugar, or just check out the parts of the factory that interest you. You can also see inside the powerhouse, where green energy is generated for Queensland homes.

  • Invicta Mill - Mill Street, Giru, Pioneer Mill - Bruce Highway, Brandon, Kalamia Mill - Beach Road, Ayr and Inkerman Mill - Bruce Highway, Home Hill.
