We had always told our kids that we would take them to the Big Pineapple sometime. We had fond memories of our visit to it in the late 80's. On our recent trip to Noosa we made good on our promise - but what a waste of time!! So disappointing to see this Queensland icon in such a state. The car park was completely empty on our arrival - we joked that we felt like the Griswalds arriving at Wallyworld!! We soon understood why it was empty. Other than a quick photo with the Pineapple, there is very little on offer. There is the train ride, a small animal farm (both at a fee) and small kiosk but that truly is it. The Pineapple itself was looking a bit run down and could certainly use some TLC. If you're in the area, stop for the photo, but don't expect much more than that.
