  • Here we are thinking that this place is just a small shop where you can purchase some ginger products. Wrong! This is a fantastic big enterprise. Full on bric a brac, ginger products, cafe, bee tour.....  more

  • The ginger factory was nice as usual and lunch was satisfactory but I drove there to have my favourite macadamia nut parfait. So disappointed when they didn't even have macadamia nut ice cream...

  • It'd be better to visit when it isn't raining. I ended up wringing wet getting from one place to another. Difficult to keep the weather off when using wheels or frame. The 'boat" is a carnival-type ride with cute detailed dolls/manikins; would be better to have better lighting to see those details properly. The train is quite fun, better to be towards the back of the 1st carriage so as to see the birds swoop for the crumbs the driver throws, yet not to close to the smell of the engine. The factory tour is observation points on 2 rooms with a video & well-informed (& astoundingly patient) tour guide. The tastings very small so don't skip lunch. The food in the cafe is good if a little overpriced, the ginger elements delightful. I ordered calamari but got fish, possibly not heard accurately due to masks. The ginger is consistently the star of the show. Overall I'd say the infrastructure could do with some work to provide more shelter, less slippery walkways. The staff are very helpful friendly & patient despite being run off their feet. A comparatively expensive day out.
  • Highly recommend. Our family had a great day here. We did the factory tour, the bee keeper talk, the train and boat rides. The whole place was in excellent condition, everything felt clean and well maintained. Staff were friendly, cafe food was excellent. Felt like very good value for money.
