Discover the story of ginger from paddock to plate and see how Buderim Ginger has become the largest processor of ginger in the world. Experience the fascinating world of bees with the live bee show then enjoy a tasting of sensational varieties of honey. Go Overboard with the Gingerbread Man as you set out on an exciting water voyage visiting hundreds of puppets from every port of the world.

“Lovely day out.”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

We have just come back from a lovely day out at the Ginger Factory. The tour through the factory was very interesting and informative. To end off the tour there was some treats to taste and to get some different ideas on how to use their products. It is a great place to take the family as there is plenty for the little ones to do there.

“Always enjoyable!”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

We have visited the Ginger Factory possibly every time we have visited the Sunshine Coast. It is a great place to spend an hour or several hours. The ginger tour is worth doing and especially the end where they show you some great ideas for using their ginger products. We still buy the ginger refresher from our local grocery store which makes a lovely refreshing beverage.

The cafe is also great and has some lovely food options and the the aioli that they put onto the chicken burger is amazing.

Definitely worth a visit and we will visit again for sure.

“Day outing to Ginger Factory in Yandina”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

We had an enjoyable outing to the Ginger Factory in Yandina. We took the bus route 631 from Nambour Station and get off near Yandina's train station. From there we walked to the Ginger Factory. It took us a good 20 mins walk but it was fun. Admission to the factory is free but there is a fee to the rides and the ginger tour. The fee for an adult ginger tour cost AUD14.50. You get a guided tour to see a documentary about the ginger, sight the various stages of processing the ginger and also get to taste of great ginger products such as dip, juice, sauce and jam. I tried the ice cream cone with ginger flavor and it was yummy. This place is fun and educational not only for the children but adult as well. There were also many and various products made from ginger and other stuffs on sale. Some of the ginger products were "naked ginger", ginger jam, ginger nougat, ginger bons, ginger bears, ale, ginger coated with chocolate and many more.
The Ginger Factory open daily from 9.00am to 5.00 pm.

“We'll Be Back!”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

We (myself, husband, son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren) visited in November 2013, BGF having been the #1 priority on my list of things to do while visiting our son and his family in Brisbane. We couldn't have been more impressed (our son's family are quite new to Brisbane so hadn't been to BGF previously) - all six of us had a wonderful time!! The free entry is great; we chose to do the boat ride and the train ride, both were brilliant; the 4-yr-old loved the boat best and the 2-yr-old the train but we all loved both. The boat ride is an amazing concept with a huge amount of work put into it, congrats to the creator of it! The ride costs are very much worth it. The shops and gardens are great, the café (where we stopped first) offers excellent food, service and average pricing. Thanks so much BGF, we'll be back, next time to do the other two tours!
