Ginger to Grow and Ginger to Eat
This month, the Ginger Flower and Food Festival will celebrate its 20th Anniversary, with the biggest three-day festival to celebrate with an impressive array of food and gardening experts at Yandina, on Friday January 22nd, to Sunday January 24th. Head north of Brisbane, on the M1, and around 110 kms north, turn off at Exit 215, and follow the signs to The Ginger Factory, on Pioneer Road.

Around the Grounds


Entrance to the Ginger Factory is through the shop which has a huge array of ginger and other products, as well as souvenirs. The Ginger Café has an extensive lunch and snack menu, and Ice Creamery is a great place to enjoy fresh ice cream as you enjoy the ambience of the surrounding gardens.
