TYTO is the eclectic, the unexpected; where the discovery of art, culture, nature and knowledge unfolds. It is a place of inspiration that honours, in name, the endangered Tyto Capensis Owl. TYTO is so much more than a wetland… Year round it plays host to a fusion of events, activities, workshops and tours. A perfect place to while away an hour or a day. A serene one hour drive north of Townsville, in the heart of Hinchinbrook … TYTO is the ideal way to take time out.
Take a journey through the sugar industry, bringing to life a yesteryear that has shaped the great pioneering cane community of Hinchinbrook. The tour provides an overview of the industry through local visual production “Sweet as Sugar”, then ‘works the land’ via a guided walking tours of agricultural heritage displays conducted by one of their local historians, resting to enjoy a traditional Cane Cutters Smoko in the picturesque TYTO Parklands.
Discover the sweet but arduous toil that was the life of the sugar cane worker. This tour is both a free self guide tour (no Smoko) and a paid guided tour with Smoko (light lunch) in the picturesque TYTO Parklands.
