Visit the 'Jewel' of Maleny: Maleny Botanic Gardens & Bird World: AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE. "The most exquisite gardens I've seen in my 41 years in the garden business. It will be the next wonder of the world!" Graham Ellis, The Garden Guru 2011. Set on over three hectares the manicured, magnificent Gardens are positioned high on the escarpment. They are privately owned and form a panorama of waterfalls, lakes, ponds and colourful plantings. Uniquely landscaped layers, idyllic rainforest surroundings and the spectacular Glasshouse Mountains backdrop create a truly unique garden. BIRD WORLD: Our facilitated, interactive Bird Encounter in the Bird Aviary brings you up close and personal with colourful birds of the world from Finches to Macaws. We conduct regular guided walks daily, please enquire about Tour Times when purchasing your Garden Entry, as tour times may vary due to demand. Sit near the waterfall, watch, listen and photograph birds as they alight upon you -an awesome experience. Then visit our MINIATURE ANIMAL enclosure - a favourite with all ages. Enjoy chicken, ducks, geese, guinea fowl and pat our animals: Ginger & Frosty the alpacas, cuddle Bah Bah the sheep and snowflake the billy goat. There are lovely walks throughout the Gardens however you are welcome to just enjoy our fabulous Devonshire Tea any time during the day, in one of the gazebos overlooking the Gardens and mountains. Bring a picnic to enjoy in the gardens by one of the many lakes, lounge on your blanket and soak up the peace and serenity. You can even bring your dog on a lead! Our gazebos are ideal to hold your special celebration with friends or family - book for a High Tea catered especially for you. For group bookings phone or email us to arrange a date and time. A breathtaking location for your magical day: "You could not have a more beautiful venue for your wedding" is a comment we regularly receive. Explore the many tranquil and romantic settings for your ceremony and photography and choose one or a combination of components to suit your special day. The photo opportunities are endless. Let the sights and the sound of running water enchant you and your guests and provide you with an experience that you will cherish for life. Gardens are open 9am to 4.30pm 7 days a week and only close on Christmas day. Aviary tours run several times daily. Entry by Admission, take advantage of our Family Day and Annual Passes. 233 Maleny-Stanley River Road corner Mountain View Road, Maleny.

Great family fun to be had with a vast amount of themed gardens, water features and statues. So many areas to explore and a wonder for the kids. The bird aviary tour is brilliant with close up feeding and birds perching on you. Highly recommended!

Sorry, but I don't know the answer to your query. I don't recall seeing anyone with a dog when we were there. I suggest you contact the gardens management direct for an answer.
