Nice to see...some jams, pineapples. Scope need a bit of freshing up. A bit of updating will make everything look more 2017 rather than 1990! The construction is interesting. If you have kids, they'll love the show.

Pretty for a picture but otherwise not much to do. Do stop and support the local industry, their dried pineapple chunks are the best!

It's a HUGE metal pineapple and that's about it. Interesting to take pics and possibly get the kids to play in the play area. Besides that, very little to do.

The big pineapple is probably the most well-known attraction in the village of Bathurst. They charge a small entrance fee. I found the 'movie' very interesting and informative as it shows the entire cultivation process around their famous Cayenne pineapples. The dried pineapple products they...More

Whilst in Bathurst we couldn't pass by 'The Pineapple'. It was quaint and in need of repairs which were under way. Although I wouldn't drive out of my way to visit, we did learn a little about pineapples. There are a few homemade pineapple products...More
