  • We just stopped in for a coffee on our way to lunch at the Spirit House and we were blown away by everything on offer at the Ginger Factory. Next time we'll bring grandkids! Looks like a lot of fun.

  • It'd be better to visit when it isn't raining. I ended up wringing wet getting from one place to another. Difficult to keep the weather off when using wheels or frame. The 'boat" is a carnival-type ride with cute detailed dolls/manikins; would be better to have better lighting to see those details properly. The train is quite fun, better to be towards the back of the 1st carriage so as to see the birds swoop for the crumbs the driver throws, yet not to close to the smell of the engine. The factory tour is observation points on 2 rooms with a video & well-informed (& astoundingly patient) tour guide. The tastings very small so don't skip lunch. The food in the cafe is good if a little overpriced, the ginger elements delightful. I ordered calamari but got fish, possibly not heard accurately due to masks. The ginger is consistently the star of the show. Overall I'd say the infrastructure could do with some work to provide more shelter, less slippery walkways. The staff are very helpful friendly & patient despite being run off their feet. A comparatively expensive day out.
  • Awesome ginger factory tour. Way better than expected. Blown away by the variety of products in their on-site store. Knowledgeable friendly staff. Had a wonderful experience. The garden area is just beautiful. Great for kids and adults 😊
