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.

“Great attraction for families!!!”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

I took my two young children (2 & 4) on an afternoon tour and was impressed with the quality and value for money that Maleny Dairies provided. The tour fee was very reasonable and I can honestly say my children had more fun bottle feeding the calves and tasting yogurt than they did visiting any of the theme parks (which just leave my family worn out and grumpy by the end of the day). Highly recommend!

“A wonderful cheap morning out”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

We often buy Maleny milk and cream and thought we would check out the tour. My three year old son loved it, he really enjoyed feeding the baby sheep and calves. My husband and I found it interesting and informative, the staff were friendly and all had smiling faces. It was a wonderful experience for adults and children. The samples of products at the end was also wonderful and the ice cream was great value and very yummy. We will be back and bring our school age children too next time.

“Milking methods of the past, and into the future”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

A delightful excursion to see, smell and taste dairy products straight from the farm and in a delightful setting. Friendly and informative staff made for a delightful visit, and the foamy thick shake was a marriage of memories to today's taste buds,

“Fantastic food!”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

We visited Maleny Dairy for the first ever time today and absolutely loved it. Unfortunately we were too late for the 10.30am tour, so instead we sat to morning tea in the gorgeous Spring weather. Wow! What fabulous food you have - milkshakes, the lightest most delicious scones with thick farm cream, toasted cheese sandwiches and fantastic coffees. I even bought some Kenilworth cheese to take home. We will most definitely be back for another visit and will include the tour. You have an amazing set up in a beautiful country setting. Thanks for a lovely first visit.

“Unforgettable experience for the kids... great for whole family”
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! :)
