  • We were a group of four and had seen many brochures about this attraction. All stated that it was free. We thought that was unusual but expected they would sell lots of product to gain funds as well a...  more »
  • Go for the ginger and bee tour (forget about the rides)! An educational tour followed by food tasting. I personally prefer the bee tour - an eye opener! A good way to spend 3 hours here  more »
  • The factory tour was fantastic, and reasonable value. A really nice, and family friendly place. A comfortably short drive from the Noosa area.  more »

  • Fun and educational. We went late in the afternoon so some things were understandably closing up. Went on Moreton the train which was good. You go around the whole location with an information voice over. They do also have a tour of the factory and honey bee sessions. I don't think the price is too unreasonable, $17 for an adult to go on the train and Overboard (fun little "it's a small world" style indoor boat ride) isn't that steep. Probably wouldn't make a whole day of it but definitely a good morning or afternoon activity.
  • Great with young children. For those on a budget you can walk around for free. We have little ones at the right age. Went on Mother's day for a little while. Staff are genuine and friendly. We didn't do everything but it was a nice for the morning. Grandparents and kids would be in their element.
  • It's an attempt to turn a product into a tourist attraction. If you have money spare and want somewhere to bring the grand-kids I'm sure it would be great. But we felt the price of the attractions (Factory tour, animatronic story, bee-hives, and mini-train) were too steep for 3 adults to randomly come across. "Ginger Town" was kitschy and touristy with general-store and import type products. If you like Ginger and just want some quality products, keep to the front store. If you like Ginger and want somewhere to take the kids for a day, then it's built for you.
  • Very touristy! Free entry, but then everything costs. Good just to wander through, but not really much to see!
  • Good place for the kids or somewhere to eat. Rides are aimed at very young children. Lots of ginger products to purchase.
