While the place as a whole is in need of upgrades I found the Brewbake Micro Brewery inside. Fantastic. Ha d a good chat with Hayden the owner while I tasted his three beers for $10. Well worth it. The German rye and wheat beer were fantastic as was the pale ale. Hayden is an absolute wealth of knowledge about brewing, having been in the industry since he was 17. I walked out with a 1 litre bottle of each brew ($9) each. Love them. Really good beers.
So, even if the big pineapple itself as been refurbished, the rest of the facilities haven't. But go and see BrewBake if nothing else. I am told y my kids the frith, mango parfaits are still good.
One thing, I remember coming here as a kid and it seemed a lot bigger then.
Have fun and remember to visit BrewBake.
