MALENY DAIRIES Dairy Tours MUST be booked online

With the easing of COVID-19 rules in Queensland, we have reintroduced our Dairy Tours with some limitations to ensure that we meet the Government Requirements and ensure the health of our staff.

ALL TOURS MUST BE BOOKED AND PAID FOR ON-LINE

Tours are now running but we ask that you make your booking online, as we can’t accept walk-ins!

There is a maximum of 20 people per tour!

Please go the Booking link to book your tour.

Our Milkbar is still be open as usual MONDAY to SATURDAY, selling all our beautiful products plus cold drinks, coffees, sandwiches, local pies and many snack options.

Also available a large range of frozen take home packs of superior quality Maleny Black Angus Meats.

As we are attached to a working farm and are a food manufacturing facility we cannot allow you to bring your dogs when visiting Maleny Dairies.

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. Our Dairy Tour guests are welcome to spend some time at our Milkbar, or just enjoy our beautiful location with a BYO picnic or make use our on-site BBQs.

Feel free to allow your children to play around in the grassed area next to the Milkbar and enjoy the experience of being here, but it is the responsibility of the parents to ensure their children are safe at all times.
