Vale Fairymead Mill

Sugar mills in the Bundaberg area in the 1880s were small by today's standards, with the smallest losing out to 'progress' and their larger neighbours. The trend has continued, the three Bundaberg area mills which lasted into the 21st Century were sold to overseas interests and Fairymead Mill was closed in 2005.
