A large influx of people searching for a cooperative lifestyle migrate to Maleny every year.
Get in touch with nature at Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve and Obi Boardwalk. Mapleton Observatory and Landsborough Museum will appeal to museum buffs. There's much more to do: meet the residents at Australia Zoo, do a tasting at Maleny Mountain Wines, explore the galleries of Artworks in Clay by Anne Gentry-Smith, and take in the dramatic scenery at Kondalilla Falls.

For photos, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Maleny online trip builder .

Launceston to Maleny is an approximately 10.5-hour combination of flight and bus. You can also do a combination of car and ferry. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Launceston in December: high temperatures in Maleny hover around 32°C and lows are around 23°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Thu) early enough to go by car to Noosa.
