Owner description: 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.

“Unforgettable experience for the kids... great for whole family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

I am writing after 8 months since we visited Maleny Dairies because of regular reminders from my little girl how the experience at this place has left a deep impression in her. She still talks about her wonderful experience after so many months and keeps asking us to bring her back there! It was indeed a very good farm tour, one-of-its-kind. The milk sampling at the end of the tour was something that others don't offer too. It's surely worth the trip here and we are glad we drove all the way to Maleny.... hope they keep the cost low and keep up the good service! :)

“Worth coming back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

A short visit this time just to pick up some excellent product as we were in the region.
Staff here have always proven to be friendly and helpful.
The yoghurt is excellent and not available in many shops. The milk and cream are available at some Brisbane shops and highly recommended.
Last visit we did the tour with grandchildren and had a great time.

“Definitely worth the visit - for the delicious yoghurt & cream alone!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2013

Took the kids to the Maleny Dairies whilst visiting in the region for a wedding. We thought it would be a fun way to fill a morning but ended having a marvelous time beyond our expectations. My little boy (5) was captivated by the dairy and how it all operates and loved watching the workers bottle milk in the packaging area. Tied in perfectly with his "Animals" theme this term at school.
The tours are well organised, informative and most of all fun. Our guide was terrific, She was informative, friendly and nothing phased her, from wayward baby goats to a yr 2 student whose curiosity got the better of them in the milking section. She kept her sense of humour and professionalism throughout.
There is a wide open space where the kids had a brilliant time jumping on the "bouncing cows" and playing oversized chess and the grown ups were able to sample the delicious tea and scones...oh the Maleny cream is heavenly. We also had some Maleny yoghurt - all those Maleny residents are very lucky to have such luxury so close to home!!

“Great fun educational trip for young and old”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

Visited as something to do with a 4 & 5 year old whilst on holiday in Maleny and was very pleasantly surprised! Great tour, Tuppence are tour was very engaging and clearly loved her job, Plenty of information, hands on with the animals and time looking at the production process from cow to bottle. A perfect finish having a tasting of their key products and spent some time just sitting enjoying the views and the kids toys available to play with. My only negative comment would be a request to please don't spray fresh milk on the tourists when hand milking the cow as fresh fatty milk does not come out of clothes in cold washes!! Highly recommended otherwise :)

“Family Farm Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013 via mobile

I was dubious about this visit at first, but our group of 4 adults and 3 children (5 , 8 & 10 years) had a fabulous day at Maleny Dairies. The tour was educational without losing the kids' interest and very well organised and presented. Staff were lovely and scenery gorgeous. We sat afterwards while the kids played on the grass and had scones and yoghurt which were delicious!
