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.

Not sure about the negative comments previously but we thoroughly enjoyed our dairy/farm tour on the day. For the price I think the approximate hour and a half tour that we received and samples at the end was well worth it. We were told about the history of the dairy, shown a video, taken on a tour to visit one... More

We had Louisa as our tour guide. What a great girl she was - so full of enthusiasm, especially for the last tour of the day. There are five different tour times. I took 4 kids out to Maleny and did the 2.30 tour - we wanted to see the milking process at 3pm. Glad we did. (Ages 9 -... More

Wanted to see this place as per the recommendations by a tourist brochure when we were holidaying on the Sunshine Coast. According to the brochure they had two tours one at 10.30 and another at 14.30. We went in time for the 14.30 one. There was nobody to guide. It was so disorganized, nobody could give us correct information and... More

We doned our ponchos and visited Maleny Dairies on a rainy day. It did not dampen our mood. Mr 8 embraced everything about the dairy farm including having milk squirted into his mouth direct from the cows udder. The factory and milking process was very interesting to all. The family were all keen to taste test all the milk and... More

We did this in the rain but it was still entertaining but would be amazing on a fine day. Not just cows but baby farm animals too. Defiantly worth a visit if you have kids.

We did the 2.30pm ride because thought the factory tour would be awkward for small grandkids. Wouldn't bother again as cows were already in so saw nice green paddocks. Kids did enjoy feeding the emus. Really no value in it at all as only $1 difference in price, We observed part of the farm tour and you don't get to... More
