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.

Starting out as a café and fromagerie, our gelato and sorbet was made daily on site in traditional artisan style. As word spread and the awards began to accumulate, our name became synonymous with ‘truly amazing’ gelato.

We now welcome a new chapter in our story, and while our name has changed, our values and the quality of our award winning gelato and sorbet remain the same.

  • Brouhaha Brewery

    At Brouhaha Brewery, as the names suggest, we like to make a big deal about beer. With the freshest ingredients and an open mind, we strive to make a higher standard of beer that will not only make the big breweries sweat, but will also make you push the boundaries of what you know about craft beer. This little independent brewpub tucked way in the hills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, was born out of the idea of sharing the love of craft beer and passing on the knowledge and skill that goes with it. With the desire to create a go-to venue for an ale and a quality meal, made out of the freshest local ingredients, our beer included, Brouhaha was born in a location that was meant for a Pharmacy. Our love for craft beer can be seen from everyone on our team, from our brewers to our Chefs, who use our beer in their cooking, to our bar staff, if you get them started about beer, your food is bound to go cold and your beer to go warm. Brouhaha Brewery was founded by locals, for locals in mid-2016, with a mission to educate and introduce the community to the art and world of independent brewing and craft beer. Accompanied by quality, locally sourced food, Brouhaha Brewery is a great spot to settle in with a beer and enjoy the company of great friends.
