  • The biggest part of the attraction here is the shop - selling every nature of ginger goods and local products as well as souvenirs of Australia. Most was high quality which was good to see. Gardens we...  more »
  • It took us an hour drive from Scarborough. We went for the full pass for ginger tour, honey tour, train ride and indoor boat ride. Love the honey tour most as the kids get really up close with the bee...  more »
  • I think the best word to describe this place is "Meh". It's not bad, it's not good. It's worth a quick look on your way to or back from any number of other more worthwhile attractions on the Sunshine ...  more »

  • 19.3.2018 based on a weekday visit. Bonus free entry, wheelchair accessible, companion card welcomed, clean tidy, beautiful gardens and walkways, lovely gift shop area. Outdoor eating area clean and relaxing I'm sure it could get very busy on weekends. Train excursion around the grounds informative and thrill for the Young ones. Lots of different areas to splash cash. Ice-creams a special treat. Lovely friendly happy staff.
  • Overall refreshing experience. Creative landscaping. Luscious Grounds. Simple Food menù covering small variety of fused tastes. Reasonably priced. Great customer service. Courteous and helpful staff. Fun family time with train through the surrounds. Wide variety of premium crafted gifts n sweet shops Excellent tourist stop
  • Beautiful place to spend a few hours at. The factory tour was great-not too long, very informative and just right. Younger kids (perhaps grade 2 - 5) will most likely enjoy the tour, definitely not a place for a fussy teenager. Amenities well maintained. Train ride was nice too. Shop sells products, souvenirs, gifts at a reasonable price-you might just become a fan of the wide variety of ginger products on sale after the "tasting" session which is part of the tour.
  • Not a bad spot to bring the kids. Entertainment for the kids include a train ride, a boat ride in an undercover tunnel with mechanical puppets that the kids will enjoy. There is also a small playground. Most activities can be done during wet weather, including the playground. The produce is also not as expensive as I was expecting.
  • We decided to drop into the Ginger Factory on the way home from our Sunshine Coast Holiday. My 2 year old son and 5 year old daughter had a lovely day on the train that goes around the grounds and the boat ride. The kids found the playground while we had a sat and had lunch and a coffee, until they wore themselves out. There are a couple of cute shops inside as well. It was a great visit and we loved the ice creams, especially the macadamia and ginger.
