After an affordable activity for the kids? Maleny Dairies is a dairy farm and factory tour, a great educational tour for the little ones.
Tours are run daily every 1.5 hours (10.00am, 11.30am, 1.00pm & 2.30pm) we took our 9 month old who absolutely loved it. At the end of the tour you get to sample the different kinds of milk, yogurt and custard, which was a really great way to end the tour.
There are also tractor rides – $10 pp and free for kids under 2 (subject to weather).
There is a kiosk onsite so bring a picnic blanket buy a coffee and let the kids run around after the tour. You can also purchase their products to take home, so bring a cooler bag with you.
Overall it was a lovely day out and would highly recommend going.
Tip: Go on the 10AM tour to see the springers (pregnant cows) being fed. If you want to see the herd actually in the dairy being milked then go on the 2.30PM tour.
