Marvel at the size of The Big Pineapple, a colossal sculpture erected in the midst of farmland. Modeled after a landmark Australian sculpture in Queensland, the South African copy stands 16.7 m (54.8 ft) tall, about 1 m (3 ft) higher than the original. Step inside the structure to browse the shop and learn interesting facts about the pineapple industry. Climb to the observation deck on the top and get 360-degree views of the surrounding fields and the Indian Ocean in the distance. Take a look at our Bathurst vacation maker to schedule your visit to The Big Pineapple and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Racism at its best. Don't bother. Not worth the drive out to Bathurst. A real crappy place with even worse people managing it.

  • Visited the Big Pineapple in Port Alfred! Snugly hidden off the beaten part of Port Alfred Main Road! Just experiencing an up close and personal view of the Big Pineapple which is surrounded by a Pineapple patch, was an outdoor experience to relish and cherish! It makes you want to experience the outdoors more! A hidden gem of the Eastern Cape!!!
  • I loved this place! What an unexpected surprise, the shop inside is charming and has the best pineapple juice and home brewed pineapple beer I've ever had.
