The Ginger Factory, a legendary Queensland establishment, goes far beyond its original factory-door sale of ginger. You can still take a 40-minute guided tour of the world's only publically accessible ginger processing plant. A cafe and shop sell ginger in all forms—incorporated into jams, cookies, chocolates, ice cream, wine, and herbal products. There's also a train trip and a boat ride, a miniature rainforest for kids, a live beehive tour that includes a honey tasting,
and plenty of shops to browse. Just up the road, you'll find the beautiful Yandina Historic House.
