Head to the Buderim Ginger Factory on the Sunshine Coast for a Great Day Out

Ginger Factory Yandina

The sun was shinning and  I had a day off with no plans, so I decided to head to the Buderim Ginger Factory in Yandina. I was pleasantly surprised.  There is plenty to do, so if you go for a visit make sure you have a few hours.

First I was taken on a Taste of Ginger Tour and shown the different stages of growing though to production. At the end they give you a taster of the different ways in which you can use ginger in cooking. My favourite was the Ginger soaked pineapple.

I just missed the train ride so decided to walk around the beautiful gardens full of wild ginger plants and then had a look round their quaint shops which included a macadamia nut shop, a toy shop, a scent shop and an Australian souvenir shop with dead toad wallets!!!

Next was the Superbee Live Bee Show. This was really interesting learning about the life of a bee and its hive. This also ended with honey tasting.

If this wasn’t enough they also have a train ride that takes you through the beautiful gardens, an indoor boat ride for the youngsters and cooking classes.

If you are staying on the Shinshine Coast, the Ginger Factory is not to be missed.
