Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great little tourist trap. Great selection of jams and chutneys.
The scones and fresh juice were fantastic too!
Well worth stopping in.

We were told they had amazing freshly made scones. They were correct. They were delicious 😋.
Stop in on your way through town.
Historical facts about Gayndah are inside the orange. The shop also sells a variety of jams, sauces and fruit (seasonal)

12 Motorhomes & Caravans from Palm Lake Resort Bargara stopped here on our way to Mundubbera for morning tea. Most of us purchased the local oranges 🍊 mandarins & avocados 🥑. Had a lovely coffee, scones or cheese cake. Great service. So drop in and say hi to the staff

Passing through Gatton, we stopped at The Big Orange on our journey to Brisbane. i purchased two punnets of strawberries which were leaking, bok choy which was old and kiwifruit which were also thrown out. Sorry but this is not a great shopping experience.

I can't remember the last time I was served such a tea with clotted cream, so this was really quite a treat for two hungry (and thirsty) travellers! Because of pesky flies we opted to stay inside and noticed the other produce - jams, spreads, chutneys and, of course, oranges! - on sale there. The Big Orange itself was a disappointment, showcasing mostly the labels of orange orchards in the area and precious little history of how the industry began and thrived but it was free to enter, and a great diversion for young children. It's also a good photo opportunity! The sole lady when we were there (at morning tea time( was efficient, friendly and welcoming.

While taking a picture or two may the main reason to stop here the coffee and toasted sandwiches we had for lunch was excellent as was the freshly squeezed orange juice. Remember to go inside the big orange to see a little bit about the history of the industry in these parts.

It's interesting how TripAdvisor lists this as a 'thing to do' or a 'point of interest' ... not as a cafe and yet the cafe owner responds. Perhaps it needs to be listed as a cafe separately and the point of interest bit remains because let's face it ... it's not every day that you see a giant orange! Nor do you get to shake hands with someone quite like Gay Dan.

He is rather charming, he always has a smile on his face and that bright orange demeanour is so very cheerful. He is the Orange Festival Man! You are meeting a celebrity so it's worth stopping here for a selfie or just to self indulge and have a chat with a famous icon. Either way.... this is a bit of fun and iconic to the area.

A little hidden gem on the outskirts of Gayndah. Great for a tasty bacon and egg wrap for brekky when you are staying close by.

Lovely selection of all those tasty relishes and sauces you won’t find in the supermarket. Fresh citrus on sale at a reasonable price also. PJS Brisbane
