Giru is a town in Queensland that sits by the Haughton River. The town is known for its sugar mill that is capable of producing more than 3 million tonnes of sugarcane each year. The town got its name from the Aboriginal word that translates to a place covered with lagoons or watercourses. However, some say that Giru was named after a variety of sugarcane called Goru.
The sugar cane industry in Giru started in 1906. By 1920, the Haughton River Farmers Association was able to come across a mill in Bundaberg that they re-erected in Giru and used as a sugar mill that they called Invicta. Because of the drought, the sugar production was scarce for a certain period.
Each year, Giru hosts the Giru Show, which showcases the culture and history of Giru. Locals also put up stalls and offer homemade goods to visitors. Another annual event in Giru is The Palm Creek Folk Festival that features bands from different music genres.
