Shiver me timbers! The Ginger Factory in Yandina has done it again - bringing to you a FREE school holiday show - Captain Ginger Beard presents 'How to Talk Like a Pirate!'
Weigh anchor and set sail for the distant shores of The Ginger Factory and let the young 'uns learn the lingo of a real sea-faring sea dog - without the cussing, I hope! Captain Ginger Beard will teach the children about his life sailing the seven seas in search of treasure. A lively and interactive performance - the children will absolutely love it.

The fun doesn't need to stop here! Hop on board Moreton, the 116 year old ginger train as he meanders through The Ginger Factory. Look out for the chooks as they chase Moreton around the tracks, through the sub-tropical gardens. Moreton Train rides are every half an hour, starting at 9.30 in the morning until 4.30 in the afternoon.
Join the gingerbread man on the Overboard boat ride - an adventure around the world as the gingerbread man escapes the clutches of hungry chefs. Overboard is perfect for the whole family, with music and animated puppetry featuring more than two hundred handmade moving puppets. The Overboard boat ride runs every day from 9.30am to 4.00pm.
