Overview

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 hot drinks, snacks and our selection of products at factory ptcies. 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. Our latest addition to the Maleny Dairies experience are the Tractor Rides run by our farmers. This 30min ride takes you through the stunning landscape to see the calves being fed ($10pp). At Maleny Dairies we pride ourselves on having the friendliest staff that truly makes your experience with us a very happy one.

The farm/Dairy is well worth a visit - the staff are very hospitable. Our guide was very informative and patient. The children enjoyed getting to see, feed and touch the animals. Sampling the milk, yoghurt and custard was a great end to the visit. Highly...More

Been meaning to book this farm tour for ages, so glad we finally have. It was an informative and enjoyable experience. Lovely to see a local business doing well. Wouldn’t mind going again and doing a tour that actually sees cows being milked.

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