At the Ohana Cider House and Tropical Winery you'll discover some delightful drinks that wouldn't be out of place at any big-city bar. Having taken a holiday to Hawaii in 2014 and fallen in love with the tropical climate, founders Zoe Young and Josh Phillips left behind their desk jobs in Perth to buy a piece of Queensland land, where they established their much-loved tropical winery. They then relocated their to Bundaberg in 2018 and expanded into cider, too.
Since then, they've gone on to release ciders ranging from dry apple to pineapple and strawberry, as well as produce some of the region's top vino using fresh fruit grown on the orchard or by local farmers. Snag a tasting paddle to try six of the best for $18. On Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 1.30pm, you can join a one-hour to see how the cider is made — it costs a tenner and includes tastings of the flagship ciders.
