We found Coffee Heaven !

Today hubby and I took off for a few hours R&R.
We certainly needed it, in fact I think that we deserved it !!
So we left the teens at home to fend for themselves for a couple of hours and  headed off  for Coffee, cake and some time out from the everyday stress that life brings....
We jumped in the car and headed north to check out the Whitsunday Gold Coffee Plantation.

We were in coffee heaven !!  

Situated about an hours drive north of Mackay, and just past the small Whitsunday farming town of Proserpine, is the home of one of the largest coffee plantations in Australia and what is known as the home to the "Great Barrier Bean".
If you ever get the chance to visit this beautiful part of the world, a stop at the farming plantation and quaint coffee shop are a must......

I highly recommend it.



Indulge your senses and relax on the veranda of the farm house with a cup of awarding winning Arabica Coffee, take a guided tour of the plantation and certainly don't leave before checking out the wonderful products available in the gorgeous gift shop.
The staff are friendly and eager to answer any questions visitors may have, and go out of their way to make everyone feel welcome. It truly is a magical spot worth visiting.
The products we bought home.
