Mill tour first for fes­ti­val

Isis Town and Country - - News - By JODIE DIXON

FOR the first time in the history of the Childers Fes­ti­val, the Isis Cen­tral Sugar Mill opened its gates to the public.

The suc­cess­ful 3.5-hour tour was ex­pe­ri­enced by 120 pa­trons.

The tour ex­plained the en­tire process of how sugar cane is turned into sugar.

Did you know it takes seven tons of sugar cane to pro­duce one ton of sugar?

The tour will be on the cal­en­dar for next year’s Childers Fes­ti­val.

The crowd was thrilled with the tour and mostly the roar­ing blaze of the cane burn.

Next year Isis Cen­tral Sugar Mill will again en­ter­tain and ed­u­cate the com­mu­nity about the sugar in­dus­try and what it does for the re­gion.

It was a bril­liant start to the Childers Fes­ti­val.
