Australian Sugar Industry Museum

Established in 1977, the museum is located in the sugar village of Mourilyan, just south of Innisfail North Queensland, and is dedicated to Australia's sugar heritage, from 1823 to the present day. In 1988, with Bicentennial funding, the Museum's display space was significantly enlarged, exhibits improved and a retail area added. The museum offers guided tours, audio visual presentations, static displays, changing exhibitions and activities for children. In the Sugarama Gallery attached to the museum a changing exhibition program showcases Queensland's social history and visual arts.


The collection comprises contemporary and historical photographs, books, documents, domestic objects and artefacts related to Australia's sugar heritage. Historic tractors, locomotives, harvesters, implements and a working model of a 500 horse power steam driven crushing engine are on permanent display.
