For interested delegates, there will be manufacturing and agricultural tours on Thursday afternoon April 19th. 

Manufacturing tour
Encompasses a tour through the QUT’s Mackay Renewable Biocommodities Pilot Plant at Racecourse Mill and Wilmar Sugar’s Bioethanol Distillery at Sarina. Photo ID will be required. Long Sleeves, long trousers and sturdy closed shoes are ESSENTIAL.
Agricultural Tours
Due to heavy rainfall from tropical cyclone Iris two of the AG tour sites are not accessible. The AG tour itinerary has been changed slightly. Both tours will now visit the following sites: Wilmar Bio- dunder at Oonooie, the micro propagation planting demonstration and the Cane Maturity Testing trailer at Sarina and finally the Sandy Creek Water quality monitoring site at Homebush. Afternoon tea will be provided with a short stop at the Sarina tourist information centre.
