Once the traveler hits Sarina, there is then not too far to Mackay. Sarina is surrounded by Sugar Cane Fields and is a sugar town. Bustout had pictured Sarina as being another very attractive Qld town. But sadly is a little disappointing.
That said it was easy to linger a little. If one intends to do the Sugar Cane tour you will need to allow half a day at a minimum to visit. The Sarina Museum is on the southern end of town and the museum and tour is a must.
Sarina lies just inland of the coast on the Bruce Highway. Besides sugar cane growing and milling, cattle grazing and agriculture are successful industries. Proximity to the coast and mountains also attracts tourists to this area. It is a major supplier of ethanol through the CSR Limited distillery.
Recently tourism has grown in Sarina with Mackay being relatively close. Legend has it the very first jar of Vegemite was produced in Sarina in 1922.
When traveling either north or south on the Bruce Hgy, Sarina will be passed through. At a min check out the Museum and get a photo of the ‘big toad’
