Coffee plantation owners at Mareeba in Tropical North Queensland expect their best ever harvest this year making the self-drive Mareeba Coffee Trail an even more attractive option for visitors.

The region’s oldest coffee estate, Skybury Coffee, is currently harvesting a crop which is anticipated to top 50 tonnes. Managing director Ian MacLaughlin, who is also chairman of the Australian Coffee Growers Association, says this year’s regional yield will be the best ever and predicts up to a 200 tonne harvest for the entire Mareeba region. Last year’s Mareeba coffee harvest was almost 100 tonnes.

The coffee harvesting period is June/July and approximately 25 percent of the harvested coffee will be sold internationally to coffee distributors and wholesalers in Europe and the USA.

There are regular day tours which visit Skybury Coffee Plantation, to view further details of the Tropical Horizons Kuranda & Highlands tour including lunch at Skybury please click here
