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.

Maleny Dairies Reviews
If you staying on the Sunshine Coast, be sure to head up to the hinterland and visit the dairy. It’s got a great atmosphere for family, especially with young kids. You get to taste test their products... more »

This was the highlight of our 2 night stay in Maleny. We are travelling with our 2 kids (ages 10 & 12), and all had a wonderful time. We were recommended to do the 10am farm & factory tour then take a tractor ride by a local friend. So glad we did - the tour was fun, interesting & delicious (free tasting of the Maleny Dairies products at the end of the tour!). Staff were all helpful, friendly and kind. Amenities were great. The tractor ride was also fun - a refreshing & relaxing tour through the stunning farm to see where the lucky cows live, and stopping to feed some more farm animals, including goats, sheep and EMUS! It was a hoot! We'd do it again for sure. Just remember your hat & sunscreen - it was pretty hot the day we went, and we all got a little toasted.
Great family business kicking goals. It was easy to get to and there is lots of parking. We went on the tour with our 3 young children. The tour was very interactive and we were able to sample their wares as part of the tour at the end. We saw and patted a bunch of farm animals. Tried some raw milk from Tilly the cow and helped feed some calves. Worth doing.
