Maleny Botanic Gardens and Birdworld

Maleny Botanic Gardens are surrounded by magnificent rainforest with spectacular views of the Glasshouse Mountains.

Over 6 km of walking paths meander around thousands of different plants, ranging from roses, azaleas and annuals to some of the rarest cycads in the world. All of which are complemented by numerous lakes and waterfalls – providing countless options for photography.

Picnics & Family Fun

How does this sound for a lovely day out…come for a scrumptious Devonshire Tea served in the gazebos overlooking the gardens, then spend a couple of hours wandering and exploring, followed with your BYO picnic spread on a blanket or on one of our many picnic tables dotted around the gardens, all with lovely views!

Meet Snowy a miniature goat, and Baa Baa and Blackie the Dorper sheep. Guinea Fowl, hens, roosters, peacocks (including our all white Prince Charming and Cinderella), wild ducks and other birds can be observed throughout the gardens.

We encourage our visitors to get ON the grass – picnic, snooze, play & you can even bring your dog on a lead to enjoy the day out with you.

Maleny shops offer wonderful picnic ingredients to choose from.

Bird World Aviary

From Australian cockatoos and lorikeets to exotic parrots and macaws, you will meet hundreds of cheeky and colourful birds, many of whom will land right on your shoulder.

In the animal enclosure next to the aviary you can pat our friendly alpacas, goat, sheep, chickens, ducks and guinea fowl.
