What a great place this was to stop and stretch our legs, have some lunch and walk around the shops looking at the local produce especially the ginger items. Lots to do if you have kids with the little train that runs around the grounds and they even have tours. We were however a little disappointed to find the macadamia... More

Called to see what was there. Nice shops with gift ware. Large eatery and well set up, clean. Several things to do but appears costly.

We went on a spur of the moment drive to check it out. Food was fantastic, staff very friendly. The train is excellent, especially the fat chickens running to get the food the driver throws out for them. The Overboard ride is excellent & very very well done. Recommend this to all young & old. The walking trails are excellent... More

We stopped in here (much to my husband's dismay) on the way from Noosa to the Gold Coast, with the whole family of 2 adults and 3 children between 9 &4. It has awesome ice cream and a lovely cafe. The play ground is small but functional. Nice garden and a rainforest walk with an oversize checkers board. Clean bathroom... More

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your visit here and next time, we'd love for you to go on our tours as they are certainly value-for-money. The best way is to purchase a Super Pass which gives you a... More

This place has a number of interesting tours you can go on including a ginger tour, bee tour etc, a spacious cafe that has the feel of being outside, but from my recollection was covered. There is a short train ride you can take but without a voucher (2 for 1) it would have been a very expensive little outing... More

This place is cute and is worth a stopover or visit with the kids or grandkids. Great shops with local goods, factory tour and the old steam train and boats. Lovely garden walks and a true Aussie experience.
