Yes, it has a day spa, a cafe and a very large shop. You should still go even if you are not into any of this. The free tour about the history of sandalwood in Australia, comparison of Indian and Australian sandalwood, processing, and what's happening in the Ord is all fascinating. (Of course, I did buy something afterwards, but... More

We were very impressed by the enthusiasm, knowledge and friendliness of the staff at the Sandalwood factory. We visited twice during our stay and both times were a positive experience. I had an hour massage and loved it. I was treated with care, experience and nurturing. I thoroughly recommend the massage.

Our group found this attraction very well presented and informative. Carrie our guide explained what is done with Sandalwood and followed it up with session in the show room. It was a nice touch to have a free raffle and winner on the bus for our group

Everything from Dukkha to candles and everything made from Sandalwood. They even make fudge with the nuts! I bought so many great products, got gonged (incredible) and had a Devonshire tea... More

Have a look at this place for something a bit different. The products aren't particularly cheap but I always great comments on my perfume from here when I wear it. Make sure you sign up for the Gong and Cone session, which is an amazing meditation experience.

This place has a very good selection of sandlewood products. It is a bit pricey but interesting. They did light some incense when asked.
