Well worth a visit, not cheap or easy to find, no signposts for some reason, the parrots are particularly amazing especially when they land on you

Hello and thanks for your enquiry. We no longer have a petting zoo, due to the expansion of our walk-through bird aviaries. Our animals went to some lovely homes. We look forward to welcoming you to Maleny Botanic Gardens... More

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.
