MALENY DAIRIES - DAIRY TOURS

We invite you to visit our patch of paradise on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, to see where the dairy magic happens. Our Guernsey girls thrive on the green pastures and clean, clear air. Our Dairy Tours are suitable for people all ages and showcase the process of our dairy production. From the cow, to the processing plant and finally the output of our delicious range of milks, yoghurts, custard and cream, which you are welcome to taste test. During the tour you can cuddle up to some farmyard friends, feed the animals and watch our hand milking demonstration.
