Overview

Visit the 'Jewel' of Maleny: Set on over seven hectares the 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 three adjoining Bird Aviaries brings you up close and personal with colourful birds of the world from Finches to Macaws. We conduct regular guided walks daily (tour times vary according to visitor demand- please enquire when purchasing your Garden Entry). Enjoy our fabulous Devonshire teas any time during the day in one of the gazebos overlooking the Gardens and mountains or bring a picnic lunch. You can even bring your dog on a lead! 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.

The aviaries bird section was informative also a lot of interaction with the birds, a very good experience with the staff friendly and helpful. Advised as we. We're leaving the aviary area that next year would be bigger and better. Overall a nice morning.

We had a great time with our 2.5 & 4.5yos. It may have been a little more expensive than we hoped but was great fun all round

There is a bus service from Mooloolaba to Maleny you may have to get a taxi from drop off to the Gardens but wouldn’t cost much as they are just out of town.
