Visit the 'Jewel' of Maleny: Maleny Botanic Gardens & Bird World: AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE. "The most exquisite gardens I've seen in my 41 years in the garden business. It will be the next wonder of the world!" Graham Ellis, The Garden Guru 2011. Set on over three hectares the manicured, 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 Bird Aviary brings you up close and personal with colourful birds of the world from Finches to Macaws. We conduct regular guided walks daily, please enquire about Tour Times when purchasing your Garden Entry, as tour times may vary due to demand. Sit near the waterfall, watch, listen and photograph birds as they alight upon you -an awesome experience. Then visit our MINIATURE ANIMAL enclosure - a favourite with all ages. Enjoy chicken, ducks, geese, guinea fowl and pat our miniature animals: Ginger & Frosty the alpacas,cuddle Bah Bah the sheep and snowflake the billy goat, enjoy Sparky the horse, Pippen the donkey. There are lovely walks throughout the Gardens however you are welcome to just enjoy our fabulous Devonshire Tea any time during the day, in one of the gazebos overlooking the Gardens and mountains. Bring a picnic to enjoy in the gardens by one of the many lakes, lounge on your blanket and soak up the peace and serenity. You can even bring your dog on a lead! Our gazebos are ideal to hold your special celebration with friends or family - book for a High Tea catered especially for you. For group bookings phone or email us to arrange a date and time. A breathtaking location for your magical day: "You could not have a more beautiful venue for your wedding" is a comment we regularly receive.

really enjoyed our day at the Botanic gardens. The aviary is also worth a look. Staff are very knowledgeable about their birds and enjoy sharing with the visitors. Great for the kids who all get a chance to hold some of the birds.

Nice garden & view but not sure if it's worth paying $16 per person? I guess someone needs to maintain the garden.

100's of Birds in the Aviary - all were happy and many were exceptionally friendly. 'Coco' even sang Old MacDonald had a farm! Easy to spend a whole day exploring, taking in the beautiful scenery and gardens.

We rented the buggy for $18, an hour of driving around the botanical gardens and stopping to see views and capturing photos we had a 45 minute aviary show with some stunning parrots and birds, very colorful indeed.

Sorry, but I don't know the answer to your query. I don't recall seeing anyone with a dog when we were there. I suggest you contact the gardens management direct for an answer.
