Sunshine Coast Big Pineapple

The Big Pineapple, Queensland, has been one of the best known and loved Sunshine Coast attractions since 1971. Still operating in conjunction with a 400-acre working farm founded by the Hayes family, this Sunshine Coast attraction is set to delight the whole family.

The Big Pineapple entertains with a range of rides that are both fun and educational, including the Plantation Train Tour providing commentary as it travels past 100 varieties of plants and exotic fruit trees.

The Harvest Boat Ride provides a fascinating glimpse into our possible future with hydroponics and aeroponics, and the Macadamia and Rainforest Tour transports visitors through the rainforest to the plantations, and on to the largest macadamia-processing factory in the Southern Hemisphere.

An excellent Nocturnal House allows visitors the privilege of being admitted into the night-time behaviour and eating habits of ring tail and brush tail possums, squirrel gliders, fruit bats, desert mice, snakes and more. Children will be enthralled with this extremely close-up-view of creatures rarely seen in their natural environment, some of which are endangered.

The Koala and Fauna Sanctuary houses a selection of permanent and rehabilitating native birds and animals and koala talks are held at intervals throughout the day. At the bottom of the hill the Animal Nursery houses a range of cute and cuddly animals to pet.

Local produce, art, crafts, clothing and souvenirs are available in The Big Pineapple Sunshine Coast complex, which also houses a licensed restaurant. Indulge yourself with the world-famous big pineapple and mango parfait.
