Maleny has a a special magic that will cast a lingering spell over you when you visit.

Maleny is know for its stunningly green, undulating countryside. The landscape is dotted with cows, interspersed with pockets of remnant rainforest, and offset by breathtaking birds-eye views of the Glass House Mountains, creating an exceptionally pretty holiday destination.

But it’s not just the naturally refreshing views and mountain air and waterfalls such as Gardners Falls that enrich your soul — it’s also the artistic and eco-conscious community. Maleny has a charming village, with the gentle Obi Obi Creek winding around it, where you can spot the occasional platypus if you’re lucky. Life revolves around vibrant Maple Street, with its organic cafes, eclectic fashion boutiques, brilliant bookstores and historic hotel. There’s a thriving art scene here, with contemporary art galleries and artist’s co-operatives, bodyworkers offering a range of delicious healing therapies, and scenic rainforest walks, lakes and waterfalls to explore in the immediate vicinity.
