Set on 110 acres Maleny Botanic Gardens are positioned high on the escarpment and covers more than 10 acres.  This hidden treasure is a panorama of waterfalls, ponds, colourful plantings and manicured lawns.  The gardens boast the backdrop of the spectacular Glasshouse Mountains – a wonderous view. Enjoy a Devonshire Tea in one the gazebos or bring your own picnic lunch.

A recent edition edition to Maleny Botanic Gardens is a walk-through aviary spanning over 1000m2 with a wide variety of birds.  Sit near the waterfall, watch, listen and photograph them as they alight upon you.  Then visit their animal enclosure – a favourite with all ages.  Enjoy chicken, ducks, turkeys, guinea & pea fowl and pat our miniature horse, donkey, alpacas, sheep and goat
