Owner description: 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.

I can imagine this was the “must visit” place many years ago, when pineapples were planted here.
Visited today and was disappointed to know from the lady in the shop that there is no more pineapples grown there.
I had wanted to show my boys how pineapples are planted and we only get a giant pineapple with deteriorated display inside.
Visit if you want to see the zoo, otherwise give this place a miss.
It’s a pity the plantation was squeezed out by imports and nostalgic feeling is still holding on to that pineapple landmark.

Good to see as it bought back memories of going there as a child. The inside needs a good cleaning as it is very dirty and dusty. The kids loved climbing to the top and getting their pictures taken. Cute little shop next to it and the zoo looked interesting but we didn't have time to go there. The train ride was cute but again the plants and signs need to be updated and cared for to make ride more interesting.

Climb inside history with a visit to this big pineapple! Full of amazing pineapple memorabilia and exciting facts about the history of the pineapple country.

Also make sure to visit the pineapple gift shop for some great pineapple merchandise, and enjoy a pineapple parfait to cool down.

There's nothing left here except the very tired big pineapple.
There is a small shop that sells a few souvenirs and tickets to the train that takes you to the zoo, but you're better off driving to 500 meters the zoo and saving the train fare.
