The Big Pineapple is Queensland’s tourist iconic treasure
1971 was the year that this modern day national gem was opened. Since this historically significant date, numerous modifications have occurred at the site, yet it has never lost its ranking of being a national legendary monumental Queensland attraction. It is ideal for couples, singles and families wanting a fun adventure where you can get a feel of ‘country Queensland’ with picturesque surroundings. It is commonly known for being a tourist quintessential site for many reasons, however, most notably for its representation of ‘traditional pineapple growing’. You can learn the essentials of growing pineapples from scratch right through to the factory process. Detailed below are the various charms attributable to the Big Pineapple.
