We booked on the tour and were very pleased we had. Interesting and informative and at the completion we tasted some of the products which were so tasty we just had to buy some! A great industry for Australia and worth supporting.

Nice and tidy. We didn't do any of the tours within the complex, enjoyed the walk around the gardens. We were here many years ago, probably wouldn't come back a third time.

Sorry, I do not know if public transport go there. The best is probably to ask the Ginger factory themselves.
