Awesome well worth the trip, highly recommend it. Worth going. The staff are lovely too.

Very good excellent staff was lovely and the bird world was great and awesome. Loved it, well worth the drive to Maleny, highly recommend it 😊 Nice picnic grounds. Buggy hire helped my dad to see the grounds, and also made things a lot easier. It’s so pretty 😊

Excellent. We loved the bird experiences and gardens.

All of the staff were very friendly. We enjoyed the feathered experience plus the aviary experience. Got some great photos. We spent alot of time walking through the gardens. The waterfall at the rock formation was a nice surprise. Nice rose garden and fantastic views of the Glasshouse mountains. Lots of areas to eat - either own food or theirs.

We had a wonderful day at the Maleny Botanic Gardens. The bird aviary tour was awesome very friendly guide who made sure everyone got to have a bird sit on them. Highly recommend

A great day out for all ages .Nice café however limited gluten free options. Great fun driving golf buggy around the gardens but you can walk it.. Friendly helpful staff. Would be a great venue for a wedding as long as weather was good. A definite yes from me
