Finding a safe and stimulating place to go with a toddler is often problematic. My wife suggested an afternoon at the Ginger Factory.
I went with low expectations, however was pleasantly suprised, We did the train ride and Boat tour.

Nice gardens and ponds some play grounds and a jumping castle my boy enjoyed.
He loved the Boat ride very similar to “Its a small world at disney” except you’re looking for the gingerbread man all over the world, Probably doesn’t sound enticing to adults however my son absolutely loved it.

Had a nice ginger iced coffee and looked for the Gruffalo hahah. Decent prices bought some nice alcohol.

We visited the factory with our two small kids, 1 and 2.5 year olds. They absolutely loved it! They loved the train ride and the boat ride as well. They also loved seeing the bees and playing at the playground. Was just a wonderful morning - quite packed as we wanted to be back for the afternoon nap but really amazing.

We went on Wednesday. We did some pre Christmas shopping and they had some wonderful products. Really great range and we spent up big.

We did the Gruffalo search which is a lot of fun but didn’t realise we needed the app, so will go back and do it again that was our fault

Whole area has changed since the last time we visited so we really enjoyed all the new things to see and do and will definitely be back with more family

Thanks for a great day. The ginger factor Christmas ornaments are so cute too 😍

Hi Anne, Thank you so much for your amazing review! We love hearing how much people enjoy their day out with us. There are so many goodies that can be found in our Ginger Shop and throughout Ginger Town that would make the perfect gift for someone (or yourself!) and lots of great stocking filler ideas too. The Gruffalo Spotter Trail is amazing! We hope you will be able to come back again soon to do it with the app. If you liked it before then you'll LOVE it when you do it with the app. The app is free to download too 😊 We hope to welcome you back again very soon!

Really worth a stop - great for kids and kids at heart. Easy parking at the door.

Good spot to sit, eat, have a drink - and use the toilets.

Anzac Biscuits are awesome.

Coffee shop over the road - next to Nut House - is very good.

It was a good day trip activity with the family. Boat ride and train were perfect for the little one.

Ginger factory and bee tour were informative.

We chose to just do the Factory tour and tasting which we enjoyed. The young guide was very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and approachable. The grounds were lovely to walk around and we kind of played with the Gruffalo hunt . It was a lovely couple of hours and despite the heat, very comfortable. I'm assuming if you were to do more of the tours - ie train and boat you would need significantly more time.
