Luxury holidays in Maleny

Maleny is a quiet Queensland town rich in natural beauty. Perched high above the Sunshine Coast, the town has sweeping views across rolling green hills, paddocks and pockets of rainforest, out to the Glasshouse Mountains in the distance. Pack a picnic and dine alfresco in the subtropical rainforest of Mary Cairncross Reserve; hit the calm waters of Baroon Pocket Dam by kayak or simply cast a line and wait for the Australian bass to bite.

When to go

The sun shines all year round here and temperatures very rarely dip below 20°C, but the weather’s at it best in autumn (March to May) and spring (September to November).
