Local with an interstate friend with young child (4.5yrs old) went on a drizzling Friday arvo. Plenty of cover from the rain. Nice food n drink options. Cute little shops; bit overpriced but kinda expected given the tourist shtick. The old school train is great....More

Have been to many of this type of attraction over the years but this is one of the better ones at a reasonable price. Entry is free but the guided tours have a reasonable cost. Tour guide friendly and very informative.

As can be expected, we were able to see hundreds of ways that the wonder ginger can be turned into many delicious products; so, worth seeing, learning and buying.

We walked in the door and pretty well straight out again. Overwhelmed by the amount of merchandise for sale. Hardly a ginger 'factory'. In fairness to the facility we did not go beyond the front shop area so don't be too influenced by this review....More

Sorry, I do not know if public transport go there. The best is probably to ask the Ginger factory themselves.

Not 100% sure but our guide did refer to the supply of ginger to the Bundaberg Ginger Beer factory.
