About our tours

Come on one of our farm and factory tours and learn all about the process of milk from the cow to the bottle and everything in between!

The tour runs for roughly 1.5 hours. It begins up at the Milkbar where a tour guide will take you to see a short film about how the farm began in 1948. From here it’s down to the factory to see how we process and package our products. Then it’s up to meet our tour cow for a hand milking demonstration and a chance to taste the milk straight from the udder. You will then get to bottle feed our calves in the baby pen before heading up to the dairy to see where the herd gets milked. The tour finishes with a taste testing of all our products!

TOP TIPS!

  • 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

The tour is educational and great fun for all ages!

You may want to spend a bit more time on the farm to enjoy a coffee and let the kids run around. So bring a picnic or make use of the BBQ’s. The choice is yours!

*Please note that Maleny Dairies is a working factory and due to factory operations and construction it is not always possible to access all areas of the tour.

*We are phasing out our plastic bags and encourage you to bring your own cooler bags if you would like to buy our products and take them home with you. We provide complimentary ice bricks!
