Owner description: Visit the 'Jewel' of Maleny: Set on over seven hectares the magnificent Gardens are positioned high on the escarpment. They are privately owned and form a panorama of waterfalls, lakes, ponds and colourful plantings. Uniquely landscaped layers, idyllic rainforest surroundings and the spectacular Glasshouse Mountains backdrop create a truly unique garden. BIRD WORLD: Our facilitated, interactive Bird Encounter in the three adjoining Bird Aviaries brings you up close and personal with colourful birds of the world from Finches to Macaws. We conduct regular guided walks daily (tour times vary according to visitor demand- please enquire when purchasing your Garden Entry). Enjoy our fabulous Devonshire teas any time during the day in one of the gazebos overlooking the Gardens and mountains or bring a picnic lunch. You can even bring your dog on a lead! Gardens are open 9am to 4.30pm 7 days a week and only close on Christmas day. Aviary tours run several times daily. Entry by Admission.

We visited the gardens on numerous occasions leading up to the wedding day. Everyday we vistited there was something different to look at or a new place to find. The gardens are well kept and breath-taking. The views from every angle of the garden overlooking the Glasshouse Mountains are spectacular. The birds are friendly and up for a good yarn. The owners of the gardens were beyond accommodating on the wedding day and did everything they could to make sure the day was perfect. Could not recommend this place enough! What a hidden gem.

If you love birds, this is certainly a place you need to visit! Staff is very informative about their birds and are great guides. The birds have wonderful personalities, some will even allow you to pat them. (just know when to stop when they start biting.)

My husband, my daughter from Japan and myself drove from Brisbane to Maleny, a very interesting town and shopping precinct and then further on to the Botanical Gardens and Bird Sanctuary. It is quite hilly here and we were a little concerned about my husband walking the distance. No problem. They have several small buggies, easily driven, which make it possible to cover the entire garden. The birds are beautiful and most are hand reared, making them very friendly and the gardens are superb. We are so pleased to have had this wonderful experience.

We visit regularly, particularly when family stay with us. We love seeing all the changes that happen as the gardens expand. Bird World experience is awesome!! It’s a therapeutic day out with the beautiful surroundings, scenery and waterfalls.
