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.

The farm is located just off the Australian Zoo. The drive was scenic enough, with township littered along the way. There is a small entrance fee but it is worth it. There is a short walk around the factory and farm, including a short video. You will even get to sample their products for free. Very educational not only for... More

We had a wonderful afternoon here. The tour was well worth it to see the how a dairy farm functions and to interact with some farm animals and workers. They show their passion for the industry and the animals under their care. The passion is evident when you taste the products at the end of the tour, everything was delicious.... More

Enjoyed our tour of the dairy and learning the processes that go on day to day.The tractor ride was long and relaxing.The 2.30 tour is when the cows come to be milked and although we went earlier we still saw lots of cows .
