Harwood Sugar Mill

The Harwood Sugar Mill is Australia's oldest continuously operating sugar mill. It began operations in 1874 and is owned by a growers co-operative who bought it off the Colonial Sugar Refining Co (CSR) in 1978. In 1989 a sugar refinery opened.
The sugar is mostly for the Australian market and sold under the Sunshine Sugar label. 


  1. I like this photograph!
    You captured that steam rising fantastically well!

  2. Great photography.

    Regards and best wishes

  3. Oh come now. That's WAAAAAY too attractive to be a sugar mill!!! But what a shame you don't have 'smellavision'!!!

  4. I always love your comments Red! I don't mind that sickly sweet smell you get in the vicinity of the mill but when you do a tour (not sure if it still occurs) the molasses area is truly the most overpowering and gut wrenching experience.

  5. Wow,- this is so cool!I love it!

  6. I like industrial photographs. There really aren't enough of them around.

  7. I love the way the buildings are almost hidden by the clouds of steam.
