Get back to the land at Maleny Dairies. Take a tour of this family-owned operation to learn how it makes milk and other dairy products. Pet baby calves, learn about the history of the farm, watch as staff milk cows, and observe processing and bottling in the factory. A kiosk on site sells ice cream, yogurt, and milkshakes. You can cook up your own food on the farm's barbecues if you want to enjoy a picnic. Bring a cooler with you if you want to carry products off the site for later consumption.

  • friendly staff, beautiful location, fun for kids as plenty of chooks and cows and calves (if you go in August September) to pat and feed, informative tour of dairy and factory and a tractor ride to feed emus make a good couple of hours out. $11 for adults. good to see independent Dairies making a go of it.
  • Stopped here hoping to buy some Maleny product but not much here. If you were bringing your kids they would have plenty of fun looking at the cows and sheep. We did not do the tour but again, may be worth it if you bring the children. BBQ is available with limited seating so bring a blanket. Heavy tourist destination on weekends so if you can duck up here on a weekday would be better.
  • great trip out. farm was having a fund raising day. Great outing for the kids with a true farm experience.
  • I have recently started buying Melany Full Cream Milk for my wife this is her reaction , Whao that is real milk , I was brought up having milk straight from the farm, with a thick layer of cream on the top, today I opened a bottle of Melany milk and Lo and behold there was my thick layer of cream. I will not buy any other milk from now on. Please keep your milk exactly how it is. Beautiful 🥛🐂☀️
  • Great day out for the family, and remember they have a BBQ for your own use and it's in a beautiful part of the sunshine coast hinterland, would we return there ....yes we would. Tractor rides animal feeding and a onsite tour with free tasting....yummo, in my eyes a little hot on the wallet but the kids love it.
