“Great stop over”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

While many local attractions can be tired, and not live up to the brochure, The Ginger Factory is a superstar performer on all accounts. Free entry, family fun, super clean facilities - to the point of a cleaner ensuring the car park was tidy! The retail area is superb and the gingerbread men we bought delicious - thank you an unexpected moment of tranquility and fun during our Sunshine Coast tour!

“Dont bother”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

Probably not worth the detour. The bathrooms were ok but it is incredibly overpriced for what is provided. Probably wont make the trip again.

“Great fun for the family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

Had a great day out with the family. The kids loved the train ride and the overboard boat ride (were esp pleased to be able to go around a 2nd time as a bonus!). Great little playground for kids and nice grounds to walk around.

Food was a little pricy but that was to be expected.

“Not worth the money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

Today we took 9 members of our family to the ginger factory. It was a very hot and humid day. When the ginger factory was at Buderim it was smaller and a lot cheaper. We were given a good price for a couple of tours one being the train ride ,the other being the factory that explained how ginger grows. Unfortunately with 24 people in a tin shed with only three rooms to see it was very crowded and not worth the money if you paid full price. The small tasting plate at the end of the tour was nice but very small. We had lunch before the train ride and the food was very average. The cafe area is all open and as such had no air conditioning and it was so hot it was unpleasant . The train ride was nice but very short and the seats uncomfortable and again not worth it. All in all we all were very disappointed and would not really recommend it. It could be a great place if the prices were lowered.

“Great Place to stop for a while!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

My partner and I always stop here to get the sauce that he likes. We were here in the New Year and saw the brochure for the flower and food festival. He works in WA so I took my mother up last Sunday! We thoroughly enjoyed our day!! Checked out the cooking in the Ginger Room with amazing chefs!!! Looked at the amazing plants for sale, and as always had a nice lunch with gorgeous scones for dessert!! Have been on the train ride before so can highly recommend the Ginger Factory for a stop to or fro the Sunshine Coast. The gardens are just awesome!!
