The Ginger Factory

50 Pioneer Rd, Yandina, QLD

The Ginger Factory in Yandina is one of Sunshine Coast’s iconic tourist attractions. Not only a tourist attraction but also a working Ginger factory exporting Ginger worldwide.

The Ginger Factory in Yandina is open daily with free admission, however, some of its attractions do have an additional cost.

We have gone multiple times, sometimes paying the additional charges to go on their fun ride Overboard or the ginger train, or learn more through one of their informative shows and tours.

Other times we have wandered in bought gingerbread and a cold drink at the cafe and watched our children as they played in the Kid’s play area, and wandered through their rainforest walk.

In the overboard ride, you climb into a boat and join the Gingerbread man as he travels around the world as he tries to escape two hungry chefs. In each of the different scenes, the kids will have fun searching for the gingerbread man amongst 200 handmade moving puppets.
