Whilst you’re at the Whitsundays, if you’re looking for something to do, head to Whitsunday Gold to try their coffee for it is one of Australia’s largest coffee plantations!
The fertile valley where it is located houses over 140,000 Arabica coffee trees! Made into their special roast that they bag and sell as well as brewing up coffee at their cafe. The cafe has plenty of food options for breakfast and lunch, and a cheap and even reasonably healthy kids menu. It is also licensed if the parents fancy a drink.
But whilst you’re there, you can see all the animals – Llamas 🦙 donkeys, goats, birds, pigs, parrots, galahs and even a talking Cockatoo.
There’s also a kids indoor air conditioned play park that is open 8am – 3pm with a $9.95 admission for children and adults to play. A soft play style space with slides, a flying fox and tea cup rides.
Located about 25 mins from Airlie Beach, it’s a pretty easy drive and easy to find opposite the Airlie Beach/Shute Harbour Road on the Bruce Highway, just 1 minute north of Proserpine. Plenty of parking on-site too.
