  • 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.
