Relive the days when sugar was the lifeblood of this growing region at the Proserpine Historical Museum, where you can learn about the history of the Whitsunday region's sugar and cattle industries. Don’t miss ‘Digger’, a vintage steam locomotive used in the sugar fields during the First World War. Stop at a lookout in Shute Harbour to enjoy the beautiful panoramic views over the harbour and the Whitsunday Islands.
