On your way to Hay Point, take a sweet ride with a tour of a working sugar cane farm aboard a tractor-drawn wagon. Tours of Polstone Farm at 85 Masotti's Road, Homebush operate in the second half of the year.

Hay Point Lookout, north of the Sarina township, is the best vantage point from which to view the operations of one of the largest coal export facilities in the world, at Hay Point and the Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminals.

The Sarina Sugar Shed at Field of Dreams Parkland, Railway Square is Australia's only fully-operational miniature sugar mill and distillery. Watch how sugar cane is transformed into sugar, take a tour of the facility, enjoy some freshly crushed cane juice and sample the liqueurs, schnapps and ginger beer.

Finish the day with an afternoon trip to Sarina beach. Check out the spectacular views at the lookout, relax on the beach or picnic areas, or have a meal at one of the local eateries.
