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.

Free to enter, children able to be shown various things to keep them occupied & the highlight of patting a cow & feeding a calf milk.

Awesome place. If you have small kids go here. Tractor ride is worth it and the products are great. Keep in mind no place to really eat there other than a servo style pie etc. Great family day out. Kids loved everything about it.

An informative day on a 'real' working dairy. A hands on experience with very friendly, encouraging staff. The best thing is that you are supporting a local business.And the milk products are delicious. The other animals were very engaging as well, Feeding the baby animals was fun. SORRY closed on Sunday

Did a tour here last year & it was great. The day we were there it was super busy but the staff were really organised & ran three seperate tours on a rotation.
