About the Gardens

Maleny Botanic Gardens
an unforgettable experience!

Maleny Botanic Gardens is a unique, privately owned garden, consisting of nearly 23 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 8 kilometers of walking paths.

Over 8 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.

Explore ancient rainforests.

Explore ancient rainforests and rock-formations that have been around for 25 million years! Learn about the famous Gympie Gympie or Stinging Tree and enjoy the spectacular views across the Glasshouse Mountains on your walks.

Brand-new golf buggies.

Our fleet of brand-new golf buggies makes the gardens easily accessible to all ages and abilities. You can hire them by the hour for our reception. It’s a fun way to explore for the whole family – and why not have a picnic along the way! You can also stop at our new Farm Friends Petting Zoo area.
