YANDINA’S Ginger Factory is the first location in Australia to host ‘Zog, A Forest Adventure’ which is an augmented reality experience that brings to life the world of Zog.  

The ‘Zog’ trail comes in hot on the bushy tail of The Gruffalo Trail which came to an end in January after three huge years and 150,000 visitors and the new Zog trail was officially launched on March 27.  

Visitors can download the Zog, A Forest Adventure App and immerse themselves in Zog’s Dragon School and interact with Zog and his friends Princess Pearl, Sir Gadabout and Madam Dragon as they learn to roar, fly and breathe fire.  

Based on the world-renowned book written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, the app was created by UK-based Magic Light Pictures.  

Using the free App, visitors will be able to take photos and videos of themselves with all the characters at five markers along the outdoor trail that winds through the tropical gardens of The Ginger Factory.  

Ginger Factory Manager Brenda Bailey said that the trail was a unique way to add more engagement options for visitors.   

“When the Gruffalo Trail opened in September 2021, we hoped it would run for a year. We couldn’t have predicted how much our guests would respond to the experience and are so proud that the Gruffalo Trail was such a huge hit for over two years.” 

Zog, A Forest Adventure is included with admission to the Ginger Factory which is completely free. The Ginger Factory is open seven days a week and is located at 50 Pioneer Road, Yandina.
