Maleny Dairies is a family owned business situated in the picturesque hills of Maleny. The process of milking our Guernsey gals and bottling their creamy goodness for your breakfast table is a fascinating one. On our tours ($11per person for everyone over 2)you get to see where it all happens and learn a lot about the process and the different products that we are so famous for. We have plenty of room for the children to run around so why not celebrate your child's Birthday at the farm? Give us a call today and we can discuss your needs. We also have a kiosk on the farm where you are able to purchase Cappuccino's, Milkshakes, and our famous soft-serve ice-cream which is a taste sensation! Of course if you want to bring your own picnic you are most welcome. There are also electric BBQ's for you to utilise. We are wheelchair friendly too.At Maleny Dairies we pride ourselves on having the friendliest staff that truly makes your experience with us a very happy one.

Good cheese and the most delicious yoghurt I have ever tasted. I liked watching the yoghurt being made and packaged. A real production line.

Holidaying on the Sunshine Coast from Melbourne with the family this came up as a must do attraction so off we went for a day trip. The dairy is around 40mins drive from the coast, inland up the hills and there are two ways to get there - the tourist drive is very windy so if travelling with young kids... More

Travelling home we decided to stop at Maleny. We booked the farm tour for 10am and had the lovely Amanda as our guide. She was extremely knowledgeable and you could clearly tell that she loves her job. For $11 per person we got to explore the farm (production shed and milking area), learn about its history, pat and feed the... More

Yesterday we went to Maleny Dairies. What a absolutely fantastic experience. First we were treated to a cow unexpectantly jumping over a fence and an impromtu show from nearby staff to round it up again whilst we ate scones with jam and cream (made there of course), then on to our tractor ride through the 540 acres of gorgeous scenary...

Enjoyable day out and I thought it was priced really well for a half day out with the family. At the end of our tour we tried all the free samples and we bought some of the produce from the shop and I will definitely buy more Maleny products in the future. Louisa done a great job showing us around.... More

We got to Maleny Dairies in time for the 1pm tractor ride. The ride went for about 40 mins and we got to feed emus and let the cows out to come in for milking. The kids got a kick out of seeing the cows follow the tractor down to the factory. We then had time to enjoy a Devonshire... More

We did the farm and factory tour which seems good for $11. The tour starts off with a short DVD of the impacts of the deregulation of the dairy industry in a little tin shed. This would be pretty packed if the full 30 people were on the tour but we had about 20 on our tour at 10.00am on... More

Supported children with disabilities and their carers to go for a trip to the dairy for a day trip. Free to enter, children able to be shown various things to keep them occupied & the highlight of patting a cow & feeding a calf milk. Staff friendly, but very chatty amongst themselves when waiting to buy products and food/drinks. Helpful... More

Awesome place. If you have small kids go here. Tractor ride is worth it and the products are great. Keep in mind no place to really eat there other than a servo style pie etc. Great family day out. Kids loved everything about it.

An informative day on a 'real' working dairy. A hands on experience with very friendly, encouraging staff. The best thing is that you are supporting a local business.And the milk products are delicious. The other animals were very engaging as well, Feeding the baby animals was fun. SORRY closed on Sunday
