  • As a long time Maleny resident, I had never visited the Botanic Gardens until today. I took friends there as a location scout for an upcoming music video. I expected the usual gardens and flowers but ...  more »

  • We visited on 13/2/18, what a great experience, to be able to have a macaw sit on my arm and shoulder was a dream come true. My partner conquered a fear of birds and thoroughly enjoyed the experience....  more »

  • My husband and I came here today and were besotted with how beautiful and visually stunning the gardens were - so much so that we want to have our vowels renewed here one day! Frank was lovely enough to show us around the gardens (at every turn there is another stunning pond with birds, lilies, bright amazing flowers etc to the point where we lost count!) and even treated us to seeing three baby Macaws!! He has done an absolutely PHENOMENAL job on the gardens and Avery - I've never seen anything quite like it. The birds were brilliant and would fly right onto your arm with so many species big and small. Our bird guide was really friendly and everyone had a grin from ear to ear patting and feeding these gorgeous birds. Hands down the biggest highlight of our Sunshine Coast trip and an unforgettable experience that we will always remember fondly. Great for families, couples, old and young - 5/5!!!
  • Beautiful gardens. Need a full day to explore and admire it's beauty. Suggest that anyone who visits has a picnic there. If you go into the aviary, make sure you remove your watch and hat/cap. One person has the dial ripped out of their watch by a bird and I had the button on top of my cap ripped off.
  • Visited this place for 3 times in last 2 years. Aviary is good but not great. Certain birds seem to be bit worn-out. Seems like money making is the only motive. Gardens are really pathetic. Not maintained at all. Ponds inside are muddy and brown. Flower beds are not maintained at all. Front office staff is really friendly. But seriously need more focus on the garden. Even public free gardens managed by local councils are better than this one. After achieving awards by trip advisor and lack of competition seem to have made management of this place complacent. Sad to see a beautiful land area with lot of potential in a state like this.
  • Peaceful place, wonderful people, but the walk in bird enclosure is by far the best I have seen or had the privalage to go in. Wonderful photo opportunities. 5 star rating...
  • Beautiful garden with its views, plants and sweet aroma. This along with the stunning aviary where many birds enjoy landing on visitors heads makes this a must visit in Maleny.
