Day Trip To Maleny Botanic Gardens And Bird World, Sunshine Coast. Australia
Whether you are an avid botanist, a nature-lover or simply cherish the peace and tranquility of beautiful gardens and rolling landscapes, a visit to Maleny Botanic Gardens & Bird World is the perfect day out.
Early morning we headed north to Woombye to catch up with friends Stuart and Kate at Hugga Mug Café. Hugga Mug was a cute & cosy little home away from home cafe. It’s was full of colour, love and yummy breakfast. We then headed to Maleny Gardens and Bird World. Maleny Botanic Gardens and Bird World was an unforgettable experience. The ‘Jewel’ of Maleny.
We enjoyed the panorama of waterfalls, ponds and colourful plantings on three hectares of magnificent, privately owned gardens. Positioned high on the escarpment, uniquely landscaped layers, idyllic rainforest surroundings and the spectacular Glasshouse Mountains backdrop create a truly unique garden.
The Bird Aviaries are a haven for colourful birds from around the world. You get to interact and get “up close and personal” with birds from finches to macaws. The four walk-through aviaries are home to over 700 native and exotic birds from around the world. Visitors can be part of a walk-through, interactive guided tour, where they will get up close and personal with the birds. The tours last approximately 50 minutes and the friendly and experienced birdkeepers introduce you to our wide variety of birds and provide you a fascinating education into what makes them truly unique. You can sit near the waterfalls, watch, listen and photograph birds as they alight upon you, and enjoy the awesome experience.
The newly-refurbished café is the perfect destination for morning coffee, an afternoon Devonshire Tea or a scenic lunch. They have a wide array of hot and cold beverages and an ever-changing selection of freshly-made sandwiches, pastries, dishes and snacks to suit everyone. Let the sights and the sound of running water enchant you and provide you with an experience that you will cherish for life.
