Shaylee Strawberries is located on the Atherton Tablelands ( 700 meters above Sea level) between Atherton and the historic Township of Yungaburra. Shaylee’s rich red volcanic soil and temperate weather conditions are just right for the cultivation of large succulent strawberries. These are at their best during the tourist season, July to November.
Our crossroads location on the Gillies Highway (the major tourist route through the Cairns Hinterland) makes us easy for the tourists to find. Shaylee was established in 1985 and specializes in supplying the North Queensland catering industry. Only the choicest fruit are grown and harvested only when fully ripe.
We sell only the highest grade fruit which are… Simply Irresistible.
Joe & Alice Barletta are Atherton locals who purchased the business in October 2018. They plan on keeping everything exactly the same at Shaylee Strawberries and running it as a family farm just as previous owners Bob & Fay did.
