It is absolutely amazing day. Tasting all the pineapple juices and simply a beautiful drive to sunshine coast. Train ride is great and the family loved every moment. Fresh air and spectacular view leading to the big Pineapple.

Not sure why they aren't selling Golden Circle products here, most especially pineapples. This is the only attraction here. A bit quiet though.

Had visitors from Sydney and they wanted to see an Aussie Icon, the Big Pineapple. So sad to see it in it's present state. Run down, untidy and hanging on by a thread for survival was rather depressing. Small Zoo and Café staff are nice...More

Literally, a giant pineapple. It was neat to go inside & made for great photo ops. It's cool to see how Pineapples grow in the rows just steps from this huge one. Inside of the giant hollow pineapple is a mini museum, but really, who...More

What was once a bustling attraction is a shadow of its former self. The zoo is worth having a look at but the pineapple side of things is well and truly in decline. Go for sure but dont expect to much.

It's closed for good at the moment, not sure if it will open in the future but it looks unlikely!
