About the Gardens
Maleny Botanic Gardens and Bird World An Unforgettable Experience!
Maleny Botanic Gardens is a unique, privately owned garden, consisting of nearly 18 acres of gardens, set on a 110 acre property. Overlooking a backdrop of the iconic Glass House Mountains and surrounded by magnificent rainforest. Layered and terraced gardens interspersed with a multitude of stunning waterfalls and lakes only add to the majestic nature of this unique attraction that sits high on the escarpment.
Over 6 kilometers of walking paths meander around thousands of different plants, ranging from roses, azaleas, annuals, and orchids placed throughout the Gardens, to some of the rarest cycads in the world. All of which are complemented by numerous lakes and waterfalls – providing countless options for photography.
Maleny Botanic Gardens’ ‘Bird World’, which opened in November 2013 attracts visitors of all ages. The four walk-through aviaries are home to over 700 native and exotic birds from around the world. Visitors can be part of a walk-through, interactive guided tour, where they will get up close and personal with the birds.
Tours are conducted several times daily. Other points of interest are over 18 gazebos with beautiful views for a perfect picnic supplied from our onsite Cafe, a Fairy Tale Garden, a giant chair, old fishing trawler and treehouse to explore, as well as Devonshire teas to enjoy overlooking the gardens.
