Maleny Botanic Gardens and Bird World is a must visit in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. Set in a stunning backdrop of the Glasshouse Mountains, there is something new around every turn. The avaries are clean and well set out and the birds are simply exquisite.

I’m not sure on the pricing sorry. It is free to walk around their beautiful gardens. You pay to go in for the guided tour with the birds.

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.
