Maleny Hotel & Accommodation

A rich mix of natural beauty and a thriving local creative scene, Maleny is a town with an overwhelming feel of community, perhaps best known as the birthplace of Woodford Folk Festival. Retaining its identity as a dairy farming town and an arts and craft hub, it is home to many nationally recognised artists and writers and remains a prominent centre for eco tourism.

The easiest way to get to Maleny is by road from Brisbane airport which takes approximately 1.5 hours. The nearest airport however is Maroochydore airport which hosts less frequent domestic services from Sydney and Melbourne. Airlink provide a transfer service from Maroochydore to Maleny, a scenic drive worth taking through the rolling hills of the region's dairy farms and paddocks.

The town has many accommodation options available from charming cottages, country cabins on the Obi Obi Creek and luxury forest villas with stunning views. Whether you're looking for a cultural retreat with friends or a family vacation, there is Maleny accommodation to suit every budget.

Known for its proximity to The Glasshouse Mountains and surrounding verdant green hills, Maleny enjoys a sub-tropical climate and is best described as an eclectic mix of elements and ideas, home to many old-time hippies, newly arrived urban professionals and long-time local farmers.

Set amongst the winding Obi Obi Creek, the town rests by the largest sub catchment area of the Mary River which transforms into a popular local swimming hole in the summer months.

With its populations of artists, writers and craftspeople, Maleny is filled with unique boutique gift shops, art galleries, bookshops and craft stores worth checking out.

While in Maleny, most tourists choose to explore some of the Sunshine Coast's other spots. A series of other country villages, including Flaxton and Montville, and stunning nature reserves are only a short drive from Maleny, making it a great base for a more extensive Queensland holiday.
