  • Don't go expecting Disneyland, but for what it is the Ginger Factory is excellent. My 3 year old son loved the train and decorating his own gingerbread man. He also enjoyed the boat ride (I found it a bit creepy) and we all loved the bee talk, very interesting and informative.
  • Great place to stop for lunch. Train ride was interesting seeing around the park and hearing the history of the place. The tropical walk is small but really nice. I would defiantly go back again.
  • The ginger factory is great but the gardens there are the main attraction in my opinion! Beautifully kept gardens and facilities. Little train that goes around the gardens would be great but I didn't go this trip. The gingerbread men are delicious!
  • I enjoy the ginger Factory! I've taken many visiting family members here. Free entry! Cute gift shops and designed for children, with "around the world" boat ride and a train ride. Lovely big cafe, nice icecream cones! Check it out!!
  • We have recently re located to the Sunshine Coast and thought a visit to The Ginger Factory would be a pleasant day out. The train ride on Moreton was fun and the commentary broadcast on the train about the history of ginger, I found particularly interesting. Our 10 yo was completely enchanted by the boat ride around the world and I will admit to feeling a bit thrilled myself. I'm only allocating 3 stars due to the food court area. One cashier and a really long line of people. Come on, could you at least have 2 cashiers for peak times? I ordered minestrone soup in the mistaken belief that I would get a clear soup with meat, veges and a bit of pasta. Something hot and warm with a slice of toast. Sorry to say the best thing about that meal was the toast! The "minestrone" was tomato sauce with orzo (small rice shaped pasta) mixed through it. Not one piece of meat not one vegetable. I ate it, as I was hungry, however, it was very disappointing.
