Had an amazing time feeding potty calves, patting the milking cow, trying the free samples. Was a great trip and definitely worth while especially with children but even just as a couple.

Visited the dairy farm with my 6 year old daughter. Both really enjoyed it. Got to feed (bottle) a calf which my daughter loved. Tour was great, got to know lots more about the way everything goes. Milk and yoghurt tasting was yummy. Great value...More

We were looking for something to do for the day and decided on a trip to Maleny Dairies to see what is involved in getting milk into the shops. Exceeded our expectations. Straightaway, the place was so relaxing as we had a coffee and something...More

I’ve been to Maleny Dairies several times now. I really enjoy the tour - where you can hand feed some of the animals and get in amongst it. However, everyone’s favourite part always seems to be the bit at the end where we get to...More

What a great place to visit. It’s wonderful to see a small dairy, beating the odds by doing it alone. From seeing the history, manufacturing of bottles, milking of cows, right through to tasting the finished product, this is an amazing place, and well worth...More

I have attended this place twice now, and have enjoyed both trips. The owners do an amazing job, they present their family industry with heart and honesty. The children i went with loved milking the cows and tasting milk products fresh from the dairy.

It’s $11 each Would recommend booking to avoid disappointment. I went in school holidays and a lot of sessions were fully booked.

Hi folks, I am visiting Queensland in June with my wife, three kids (7 yo, 5 yo and 2 yo) and the grandparents. We're planning for 4 nights in Gold Coast and 2 nights in the Sunshine Coast, and wrapping up with a night in Brisbane before our flight home. For the 2 nights in the Sunshine Coast, where would be a good place to base ourselves to explore the region? From browsing the forums, I've heard Noosa, Maroochydore, Mooloolaba and Caloundra being mentioned. Which of those would be...More

So I would stay up in the hills somewhere. Are you wanting to go to Australia Zoo? You need to be there by 10am or so to catch the shows, so stay locally. The beach side areas and towns are crowded and the roads are a nightmare. I actually dont like the area much. Beaches better on Gold Coast in the mornings. Just go to one of the towns for a few hours on one day and good luck finding a car park. I would stay up near Maleny, go to the Markets ( check open days) and do the nearby rainforest...More
