About The Old Dairy Maleny
Unique family-run property on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland
The Old Dairy Maleny is a special place for us and at the centre of our own love story. It began nearby in the majestic Glasshouse Mountains where we had our first date, followed later by a proposal at the summit of Mt Beerwah. With its arresting views and pristine natural environment, the valley weaved a heady and magical spell on us and our future dreams began to take shape.
It was love at first sight when we found The Old Dairy in 2003. A ninety acre property on the Landsborough-Maleny Road which was still operating as a functioning dairy. With cows in its paddocks, ramshackle barns, a single rustic farmhouse and a view through the valley you could hardly see for wild grass. But oh what a view!
Over they years we have weeded and mowed, planted and harvested – all while watching our own family grow. We’ve watched the sun rise over the ridge and sat by the fire as the sky turned all shades of pink, yellow and orange over the valley. We shared our home with friends and family, and enjoyed our own special occasions, but it wasn’t until we hosted a big family wedding onsite that we realised the pure joy and inspiration this special place could provide for other people’s love stories.
As we watched others celebrate their weddings and occasions here in their own unique style, we began the job of renovating existing buildings, and custom-building new structures to make our stunning property perfect for events. Every aspect of this old farm has been developed with love and superior craftsmanship, and often a bit of fun too.
We look forward to sharing this special place with you.
