Yandina in A Day

Yandina Nutworks

Nutworks is located directly opposite The Ginger Factory in Yandina, and is a wonderful place to visit. They employ 70 staff in their factory and processing plant.

Did you know?

Originally, the Macadamia Tree was known by Aboriginals as the Bauple Bauple Tree and the first planting was traced back to the Sunshine Coast region.

In 1857 German-Australian botanist Ferdinand von Mueller gave the genus the scientific name Macadamia – named after von Mueller’s friend Dr. John Macadam, a noted scientist and secretary of the Philosophical Institute of Australia.

Nutworks process the Macadamia nut and separate it from the kernel in house. You can watch the process in action in their viewing area.

They even have a chocolate room and roasting room on-site. This wholly-owned Australian company is internationally recognised as a leader in their industry and sell their processed macadamia products through supermarkets, duty free stores & tourism outlets nationally.

Nutworks was created and operated out of Verrierdale, near Noosa in 1993 to crack and sort shell by hand for local farmers. In 1996 the Yandina factory was built along with the cafe, retail shop & tourist facility. In 2002 they began the production of chocolate macadamia products and confectionary.

Quick Facts

This year Nutworks will process 2,500 tonnes of nut in shell and export 15 containers this year of nut in shell.

Wappa Falls Observatory

This Observatory is a great place to take the kids and educate them on our planet and our solar system. With 16 telescopes and an outdoor display there’s plenty to look at.

The knowledge that Owen presents is both humourous and factual. Children and Adults will enjoy this evening and night time show. Last night I viewed the 4 moons of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn, the Southern Cross, a pulsating star and the Moon.

Wappa Falls and Dam

Just a short drive up Wappa Falls Road you’ll find both the Wappa Falls Dam and the Wappa Falls itself.

The dam lawns and park are a lush green this time of year and watching the water spill over the dam is amazing. The falls on the other hand offer a craggy rockface with water cascading quickly down the face of the waterfall.

We recommend good hiking shoes, a hat, and if it’s hot, plenty of water as you’ll likely want to wander like us!
