Overview

The heritage listed Big Pineapple is open daily and we welcome you to visit our iconic property. Climb the inside of the Pineapple and then take the Pineapple Train for an informative train ride through the plantation, rainforest and return to the station for a Pineapple Parfait in the Cafe. If you wish to visit Wildlife HQ Qld Zoo you can jump off at the Koala Station and enjoy all they have to offer then all aboard when you are finished for the trip back to the Big Pineapple. Train rides are $5 each and children under 3 are free. So much to do and enjoy a fun day out at the iconic Big Pineapple. As well as daily trading hours, enjoy our Saturday Markets which are on from 6:30am till 1pm weekly. Fresh food, bric-a-brac, art gallery and so much more to explore in our indoor/outdoor market place.

Was so much fun to experience the enthusiastic, joyful energy of the Saturday market. Overflowing with families, couples, singles and something for everyone. Was almost sensory overload. The quality of local produce and products of a high standard. Was so much better than I expected....More
