1. See & Do

The Ginger Factory

Nestled in the charming township of Yandina, about 30 minutes from Noosa Heads, The Ginger Factory is a favourite day out for families. Kids and adults love the fun rides and tours, vibrant colours and scents of the subtropical gardens, winding garden paths, delicious tastes and old-world charm.

There are two playgrounds for the kids, a cafe with delicious regional flavours including the must-try ginger scones, and an ice-creamery with gingerbread for the kids to decorate. Take home a little of The Ginger Factory’s magic from the gift shop or stop by Ginger Town, a heritage-style village to pick up herbal teas, indigenous souvenirs and handmade toys.

Jump onboard Moreton, the 100-year-old former cane train for a fun trip through the grounds and rainforest as you learn a little more about this unique attraction that celebrates the history of ginger. Join the gingerbread man on an adventure around the world onboard The Ginger Factory’s Overboard boat ride.

The Ginger Factory, home of Buderim Ginger, has fun and educational live bee shows, tours of the world’s largest operating ginger factory and every school holiday, there's extra entertainment for the kids.
