Skybury's Australian Coffee Centre has been transformed into the ultimate farmgate experience. Labelled "Skybury Farmgate", the transformation is part of our long-term vision to further expand Skybury's coffee footprint, not only in Australia but internationally.

Skybury is Australia's largest exporter of home-grown coffee, which is an achievement we are incredibly proud of. Our coffee is enjoyed all around the world, from the street cafes of Paris, Berlin, London, Singapore,Tokyo and Madrid, to trendy coffee shops in Cairns and Port Douglas.

Skybury's restaurant and tours, will cease to operate from May 1, 2014. Skybury Farmgate will be situated within the foyer of the Australian Coffee Centre, while renovation and building works for a dedicated facility on the farm are underway.

Skybury Farmgate will be open to the public from 9am to 4pm weekdays (excluding public holidays) and will sell fresh produce direct from the farm as well as the full Skybury Coffee range. Takeaway coffee will also be available.

Keep a look out for Skybury's upgraded website featuring a great e-commerce platform for coffee sales and product information. It will be business as usual for all online, mail order and wholesale coffee sales.

We expected to be able to taste the coffee before buying beans. Disappointed to only be able to try the house blend as a cup of coffee. Also disappointed with pie and savoury tart heated in microwave. Pastry needs to be lovely and crispy. The view from the verandah was lovely but we could not see the coffee plantation. Information...

Well worth the drive up onto the Tablelands to just outside Mareeba. A 'world away' from the humidity of the tropical coastline, the coffee and papaya plantation is a welcome stop for an exceptional coffee and cafe break. The views are peaceful and beautiful, taking in the granite and bush terrain vastly different to the tropical rainforests of the north.... More

Coffee is very strong. I had a plunger and wished I'd gotten a machine made coffee. Loved the view which goes on for miles.

Stopped in and learned a lot about the coffee production process. Then had some great coffee and cakes. Saw some coffee trees as well. Very worth while.

This is a fabulous place for locals to take visitors. The food is always delicious with a good variety to choose from. Dining in a tree house with spectacular views is an added bonus.

This is the best coffee place on the tablelands. A bit of history, fantastic coffee, fantastic fruit salad. Even the toilet is artistic and pretty. Will go again and again. Compared to last time, the big change is not serving lunch..now more like a cafe

Only information on the coffee process you will get here is a sign saying "but a DVD". If we wanted to watch a DVD on how to grow and roast coffee, we would watch YouTube. Save your time.
