Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We visited this coffee plantation, it was not much to look at, but the coffee is really good. Maria looks after it all on her own, sadly she has sold the business.

We have visited several time and this time found they are selling. Hopefully new owners will roast in the way, using mainly natural qld sunshine.
Can only wish happy retirement. Such special coffee growers.

Unfortunately some travellers will head out on Dimbulah Rd and maybe travel 5 or 6 km before turning around and muttering that they can't find the Coffee plantation. People, friends, fellow travellers and coffee lovers, YOU need to drive 10 km along the Dimbulah re from Mareeba and I assure you, Maria, wonderful lady that she is, will not only serve you an excellent coffee, and she will do it with a wonderful smile. You will also get the low-down on coffee, roasting etc etc. I don't want to spoil it for you. Put it onto your bucket list, near the top somewhere. The business is for sale, so please don't delay in getting there or even placing an order via Maria's web site. Just GO

Lovely little family owned farm. We really enjoyed our time with Bruno learning how he grows and roasts coffee the old fashion way to create beautiful rich flavours.

Bruno and Maria need to be on the register of national treasures for their coffee and warm welcome. This family run business should be supported because of their passion for coffee and their perseverance. The contrast with Coffeeworks is huge, but I know who I would rather support!

Really back to basics, and we loved it. Although blink and you'll miss the entry off the road, we had to turn around and go back.

We thoroughly appreciated our time spent with Bruno and Maria; learning about the process of growing coffee, seeing their humble machinery and roasting/packaging shed, savouring a specially brewed espresso, as well as purchasing some beans to bring home.

It wasn't the easiest to find this place so here are a few tips:
- if you are coming from Kuranda, after passing through the town of Mareeba and across a bridge, turn left towards Dimbulah.
- follow this sealed road for about 10 minutes.
- Look out for the hand-painted sign on your right-hand side for NQ Gold.
- Drive down the unsealed red dirt driveway, and park under the large tree.
- There are 2 main buildings: their 2 story home as well as the packing/roasting shed which will be directly in front of you.
- Walking between these 2 buildings, knock on the door of the shed where you are likely to find Bruno and Maria hard at work :)

Whilst in Mareeba you can visit numerous coffee growers. However, you can also visit Maria and Bruno at North Queensland Gold Coffee planation. They give a back to basics insight to coffee growing and personal tour.
Don't be put off by the non-tourist approach, this is a working coffee planation run by Maria and Bruno. They are very friendly.
You get a personal tour by Bruno, who explains how you get coffee and why he started to grow it, and some of his history, which is very interesting.
All Bruno and Maria's coffee is roasted by themselves, by hand. Bruno spends many hours quality checking the beans by hand too!
You can have a lovely coffee in their roasting house, we had ice cream with a shot of expresso over the top, it was lovely
You can also buy bean or ground coffee to take home. They do sell the coffee at the airport but it is nearly twice the price!!
The tour was $5 each and lasts nearly a hour.

Well, we missed the sign even though we had been warned and ended up at the "big" plantation two minutes just up the road, which does have rest rooms should you need them :). As we were there we decided to have a look around anyway and have a coffee. We spoke to a lovely lady who told us a little bit about their coffee and plantation but we didn't want to pay $$ for the tour.

After a coffee we then headed back down to NQ Gold. We came down a funny little driveway to what looked like somebody's house, looked at each other in puzzlement and then opened the window because we could smell coffee roasting. Following our noses we then met Bruno and Maria, his daughter, who is the roaster extraordinaire. Bruno is absolutely passionate about the coffee growing and processing he undertakes. His tour did take about an hour and was the best $5 each we spent on our whole trip! Of course, we then added in an affogato each, some of the delicious chocolate coated coffee beans and a kilo of roasted two days before coffee beans. THIS was what I wanted to see - a passionate grower and roaster who has not sold out to all the hype....

We decided to visit this coffee plantation on a day trip around the Atherton tablelands it was our first stiop after driving up from Cairns so when we arrived there we need to use the rest rooms

We were very surprised when they said they did not have any public rest rooms so unfortunately we did not get to do the tour as it would have been around an hour for the tour and then we wanted to have coffee there so just could not hang on that long
We just felt that anyone visitng here needs to know they have to stop in Mareeba and use the rest rooms there before driving out to the plantation

It is a very small family attraction but they really need to have a rest room if you are inviting and charging the public to visit
