Big Pineapple is a ripoff...cost us about 60AUD for an hour..

No: forget it...better things to see, like the coast line and beaches.

Out of both if desperate Ginger Factory.But then again do you have children?

The Big Pineapple went bankrupt and is basically just shops and a cafeteria now, definitely not worth it.

The Ginger Factory has expanded and now has a "disney"type ride, and a really good store.

I would recommend Steve Irwins Australia Zoo - everybody loves its.

You can combine the ginger factory with something else.For example it is not far from the Eumundi markets if going to that on a saturday.Also close by is a very good restaurant if you like your food spicy-The spirit house at Yandina.So you can combine a leisurely lunch with a visit to the ginger factory.

If your parents like ginger definitely take them as it is the worlds best-i have seen it labelled such in Williams and Sonoma in the states.

Last time I was there one of the crocodile hunters busses was there so maybe you can combine Australia zoo and the ginger factory.
