Nerada Tea Visitors Centre
It was April Fool’s Day in 1882 when four young brothers – James, Herbert, Leonard and Sidney Cutten - rowed a boat down the Tully River in North Queensland, and then up the coast for more than 30 miles to discover Bingil Bay, the place to become known as the home of Nerada Tea, Australia’s largest tea grower.
Now you can discover the story of the great 'Aussie battlers' who pioneered the Australian tea industry; and learn how tea is grown and processed. Learn also what changes have been made over the years and how tea drinking habits have changed.
Take a tour of the Nerada Tea plantation and factory (operational times are seasonal), buy fresh tea, or a special gift.
Relax and enjoy a Devonshire tea.
OPEN Monday to Friday between 9am and 4pm
Located on the beautiful Atherton Tablelands, just 10km outside the town of Malanda at 933 Glen Allyn Road. Malanda is a 1.5 hour drive 90km south west of Cairns
