Fabulous interaction with caged and uncaged birds. Wonderful gardens, great view of Glasshouse Mountains and the Sunshine Coast. Devonshire tea caps off a really good day. Great for children. Not over commercialized, and the drive up into the mountains and back is enchanting.
Do yourself a favour and take your children or just go yourselves and leave the kids with Nana if you are so disposed. You will be so effusive about the visit that Nana will take them the next day.

Absolutely beautiful, lush gardens. Multiple ponds and small waterfalls. Narrow hidden, grassy paths (not the best access for differently abled or wheelchair users - fair warning), stepping stones over water, flowers everywhere. A real boat on a pond the kids loved climbing through, pretending to be pirates. Heaps of tables and seating at plenty of shady gazebos for pre packed lunches, with serene views. The staff were all so pleasant it was *almost* sickening (I kid of course), jut lovely people. The birds and bird aviary tour were excellent value, more than enough birds to go around, plenty of interaction to be had. You won’t get an up close and personal experience with animals like that for cheaper, that’s for sure. And I was much happier knowing that they were all either born in captivity or injured and unable to be released into the wild. So glad we finally got around to it. We will be back.

It is not easy to find, but definitely the most exciting experience around here in Queensland, probably among the most fascinating in Australia. You can come so close to various birds, like in a fairy tale. They touch you, pet you, if you let it, but some even sing an opera. I am not joking! You can have an experience over 400 birds there in the aviary.
Nevertheless, make sure you have at least one or two hours for the beautiful botanic garden, with the most spectacular view on the valley and the volcanic mountains (including glass mountain).
It shows a face of Australia, that not so many people know. Excellent adventure for even a family with smaller children.
It is easy to reach in 30-40 minutes from Sunshine Coast.
I would advise to plan 2-3 hours for the visit, in order to get the full experience.
I highly recommend this place for you.

Fun buggy rides on a beautiful botanic garden is a perfect place to visit with family. You also get to watch with the variety of gorgeous birds and if you are lucky you mat catch one of them to sing. A prefect piece of heaven tucked away in sunshine coast!

My son and I wanted somewhere fun and fulfilling to spend his 7th birthday rather than your average cinema trip, and Maleny Botanic Gardens & Bird World was on top of the list and as always a perfect choice! We are never left disappointed... The views are breathtaking, the staff are lovely, educated and very helpful, and the amazing aviary is absolutely incredible!! Our personal highlight is being up close with all the beautiful birds, it is honestly an experience you can't get enough of!! This place is definitely somewhere we will continue to visit as much as possible!! Guaranteed to make special memories with the kids and lots and lots of smiles!! How couldn't you love it :)
