Maleny Food and Wine

Maleny Food and Wine

Maleny has an abundance of restaurants, cafes and dining options available, both in the town and on its outskirts. It caters to all tastes from fine dining to grabbing a quick bite while on the road. The popular annual Real Food Festival, held in Maleny, is a great opportunity to experience the wide range of food that is on offer in the region, and many local producers and restaurateurs gather to share their favourite tastes.

The local Maleny winery, Settlers Rise Vineyard, established in 1998 on the Blackall Range makes exclusive artisan wines, and while it does not have a cellar door for public access, it does make it wines available for purchase on its website. The Maleny Cheese Factory is a popular place to buy all sorts of different cheeses and head off for a picnic at one of the many parks in the area.

The Maleny Dairies is open to visitors on weekends to enjoy a cup of tea, have a tour of the place and get some delicious fresh milk, custard or yoghurt.
