Get back to the land at Maleny Dairies. Take a tour of this family-owned operation to learn how it makes milk and other dairy products. Pet baby calves, learn about the history of the farm, watch as staff milk cows, and observe processing and bottling in the factory. A kiosk on site sells ice cream, yogurt, and milkshakes. You can cook up your own food on the farm's barbecues if you want to enjoy a picnic. Bring a cooler with you if you want to carry products off the site for later consumption.

  • Interesting film about the dairy's history, and we got to see the new machine making bottle tops, and the milking area. But the other areas of the plant were closed off for cleaning in one area and fo...  more »

  • Farm fresh milk can drink right away. Milking squeeze directly reporting to produce directly, you can also taste fresh milk right away. Even the bottle cap and a bottle here. It comes with the kids. Farm tour program is 10:00, 11:30, 13:00, with the exception of Sunday holiday 14:30 without a separate reservation just took two us, fortunately, has been an ongoing individual visitors ^ ^. Sunshine Coast travels a lot seems to be the most memorable stays schedule!

  • Very friendly and helpful staff. 😀 Poorly signed to know which side the entrance is. Saw many others struggling with where to go. The Cafe was basic. I was dissapointed. Seating areas a little run down. This place could really do better with a good spruce up, better signs to direct the visitors and an updated cafe and menu. They did have new toilets, which was a pleasant suprise. A nice young man took us on the bumpy tractor ride. Not for the faint hearted. But pretty scenery for sure. A bit of a disjointed set up. It is a farm I guess. Our kids did enjoy seeing and patting the farm animals. Excellent quality milk and dairy products.
  • A wonderful dairy. A great place for a picnic. Did the tractor ride with the kids up to feed the emus. Lots of animals to pat and see. Really well priced coffees and snacks. Great milk and cream.
  • Awesome to visit a real, working Australian farm. I'll only buy my milk from here after visiting.
  • Tiffany was fantastic. We took a study group from China to visit and she was a star. We had a great time!
  • Loved it, the kids were very happy with their experience as well. Very, very good dairy products (especially the cheese)!
