The Ginger Factory is a one-stop-shop that offers the best in food, entertainment and education. This historic Sunshine Coast landmark has been delighting families for more than 40 years with its boutique shopping, cafe and ice creamery, lush sub-tropical gardens and exciting rides.

Visitors can get around all things ginger by exploring the nine-hectare property and factory on tours and rides, as well as watching exciting demonstrations that provide an in-depth look at the way that the world’s largest ginger factory operates.

The on-site cafe boasts daily special offers of ginger-inspired dishes using local Sunshine Coast ingredients, so you never know what delicious surprises await with each visit. Must-try menu items include the famous ginger scones with Buderim Ginger marmalade, handmade ice-cream in a range of delicious flavours churned on-site, plus parfaits lovingly crafted from the aforementioned fresh ice-cream. If you’re looking for a creative hands-on food experience, you can even have a crack at making your own gingerbread man!
