  • Excellent place to take kids for them to see where a basic commodity such as milk comes from. The tour was very good and included a hand milking display.
  • i took my 2 grandchildren to Maleny dairies so they could experience some hands on farm animals and learn about farm life. The Tour guide was very informative and knowledgeable about his subject and engaging with the tour group and the children. The animals were well looked after and keen to be included in the tour. The children got to pat a cow, a goat and a calf, as well as watch the cow be milked, taste milk from the cow, feed chickens and feed a baby sheep from a bottle and teat. We all got to see a large functioning dairy and listen to how milk is made and processed, and how milk bottles are made and processed. To top it all off, we also got to taste the delicious milks, yoghurt and custard, with the award winning Strawberry Yoghurt being absolutely sublime. There is also an undercover sitting area and kiosk on site if you just want to sit and enjoy the atmosphere. At $11 per person it was big value for buck.
  • Seemed a little unorganised as there were 3 groups rotating and it there felt like we were standing around waiting because the rotation was not organised. It can feel a little draw out but the kids did have plenty of opportunities with the baby animals. We would have paid to do the tractor as well but all tours were on at same time.
  • The kids had heaps of fun on the tractor ride and feeding the animals. There products are really nice too.
  • Always loved Maleny dairy products but love them even more since we took a tour of the farm. Great way to spend a couple of hours when in Maleny
