  • Great place to take kids. Free to look around. A family pass will get you access to all the rides or just go for lunch at the cafe and grab an ice cream cone to go. There's a lovely forest walk with seats scattered along the way so you can take time to enjoy the moment. After the forest walk you can visit one of the boutique shops for some of the specialty items on offer.
  • Good for a one time visit. The Bee show and factory tour was good. For the little visitors there is a train ride and a boat ride. The best deal is to go for the "Play, Taste & Discover Bundle" which offers the Bee show + factory tour + unlimited train and boat rides. There is not much variety on the food menu but the freshly churned ice-cream is a must have.
  • What a cool place for a detour. Lots to see and do. The boat ride is super cute and the train ride is very informative. Lots of good stuff in the shop out the front and the shops inside (try the ginger beer and spiced rum!)
  • Well thought out and presented Tourist destination. Great for adults and kids alike. Nice meals area for lunch or coffee and scones. Retail area nicely laid out with everything ginger! Fairly priced merchandise with no inflated prices!
  • Loved it! The kids rides were great. The shops there could have had more local items/produce rather than commercially available items at a premium price. There were plenty of imported ginger products that they appeared to be selling as their own.
