A rural town under the local government area of Mackay Regional Council in Queensland, Farleigh is located 11 kilometres northwest of the city of Mackay, 342 kilometres northwest of Rockhampton, 380 kilometres southeast of Townsville and 201 kilometres northeast of Moranbah. The area was one of the properties acquired by English agricultural investor Sir John Lawes in the early 1880s with the goal of establishing a sizable sugar estate. Three years later, he built the Farleigh Mill, which later took over the operations of the nearby Ashburton crushing mill, with cane from the town being transported to Farleigh through a tram line. However, as soil cultivation was insufficient, depleted production eventually forced the Farleigh Mill to close in 1900. Today, the Farleigh Mill remains operational and open to visitors who want to observe the process of turning cane into sugar and molasses through a two-hour guided tour.
