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.

Interesting little spot, took the toddler out there for a fun day with friends. Ice cream and pancakes delicious. Donkey rides, jumpy castle and fire truck. Cold day out there but kids had fun. Would love to try blueberry juice and wine. Might have to visit again when not that busy.

Hi, Thank you for your lovely review. You came for 21st birthday of our Mamaku Blue Complex. It was certainly a busy day with so many people turning up to celebrate with us. Yes, we had a typical Mamaku weather. Everyone had a great time. Please, come again and enjoy relaxing day next time. We look forward to seeing you. Kind regard, Michaela

We called in for lunch which we thoroughly enjoyed on a wintery day. The venison and lamb pies were very nice. A good selection of blueberry and gooseberry wines, jams and pickles were available for purchase.

The best blueberry muffins both gf and non gf.
A further highlight was meeting the 2x rescue donkeys and giving them a scratch.
I would love to return and sample the venison and blueberry pie.

We came here 3 yrs ago on our honeymoon and my husband fell in love with their fresh blueberry ice cream and I loved their blueberry juice so we had to come back. The service we received this time was a bit awkward. We did not get a warm welcome and the woman working was not very social. We felt uncomfortable talking this time around. The blueberry juice and blueberry ice cream were still as good as we remembered but our service this time was less than perfect. There was only one other couple in the shop when we came and we tried some of the liquors with them but felt weird about even asking to do the tastings.

We ventured off the main highway following the Blueberry signage unsure of what we would find.
We found a delightful hidden gem stocked with a wide variety of blueberry jams, chutneys, sauces and wine.
This tourist stop was presented for the discerning traveller and world class in its presentation.
Only too sorry that we did not have time to do a tour of the orchard and stop in the cafe for morning tea.
Service was first class and we were made to feel very welcome.
Prices were very competitive and a lot less than expected!
Make a detour and be pleasantly surprised!
