Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

The undulating green hills of Maleny have been a dairy area for over 115 years and Maleny Cheese has been operating here since 2004 - a dairy processing business that uses milk from exclusive fresh milk suppliers in their local area.
Milk is transported from the farms to the Maleny Cheese factory in their "Maleny Cheese Truck", off-loaded into a very large vat, to be pasteurised and is then ready to become either cheese or yoghurt, including handmade cow and buffalo milk cheese, a yoghurt range which includes an award-winning Greek Gourmet-style as well as tub-set Swiss-style yoghurt.
If you're out and about doing the 'touristy' thing, pop into Maleny Cheese Cafe on the Maleny to Montville Road in the Sunshine Coast hinterland for free tastings or to purchase something from their delectable boutique range of nineteen cheeses and twelve yoghurts.
All Maleny Cheese and Maleny Yoghurt products are gluten-free and vegetarian-friendly and are made with the milk from very happy cows. Who wouldn't be happy ambling around in such a stunning area!
The Maleny Cheese range is available from retail outlets in south-east Queensland, local fruit shops and IGA stores. They also attend Farmers Markets, where they have a Maleny Cheese stall at various locations:-
Yandina, Noosa, Rocklea and Eagle Farm - for times and days, please check out their website www.malenycheese.com.au as these vary, but are usually on a Saturday and Sunday - a great excuse for weekend 'farmers' marketing'.
And, if you find yourself a bit 'time-poor', Maleny Cheese has an on-line shop, which allows you the convenience of sitting at home (or work), browsing and ordering your cheese and yoghurt choices for pick-up or home delivery to your door. Or order yourself a Cheese Platter - ideal for your social get-togethers.

We truly are fortunate to live in such a resource-rich area.
