You have all heard of this iconic attraction...but just for the moment hold your horses....we have heard it is to be reopened....so here's hoping....well in 2012 it is a little bit open.......

The Farmers Market on Saturday just reopened (Nov 2011) so that is a start

Now in 2012 a Sunday Market is in progress

2013....The BIG Pineapple had one hell of a day....full to overflowing thanks to a special old and antique car week......so maybe the future is bright.

Someone told me there is more activity as well......

Unique Suggestions: There is even a chance you might pick up a coffee during the week but if not keep driving into Nambour for a coffee....Try Husk and Honey

Fun Alternatives: There are other things to do around this way...visit the little towns of Palmwoods and Woombye or you can slip over to Bli Bli and the castle. Otherwise take the road uphill from Nambour (past the hospital) and you can drive between Montville and Mapleton and enjoy the stunning views. There is a short cut up to the Range behind Woombye but I dare you to find it!

A great alternative would be to buy and read the book "Our Sweetest Icon" by Kerry Brown
