Come One, Come All
One of the unique rural towns nestled on the Blackall Range, Maleny is known as the heart of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland; South East Queensland. Maleny is located approximately 100kms from Brisbane; about an hour and fifteen minutes leisurely drive; and is renowned for its stunning views, green hills and dairy farms.
Of course, Maleny is home to none other than Maleny Dairies the family owned and operated dairy company making a stand against the controversial milk-waste, Permeate. Maleny Dairies pride themselves on their superior milk products; promoting 'genuine milk nothing added, nothing taken away'. Milk produced under their label is quality milk produced right there on the farm from cow to bottle. Maleny Dairies even operate full Farm & Factory Tours twice daily 10:30am and 2:30pm from Monday to Saturday.
On Saturday the 14th of September, Maleny Dairies is hosting a family fun day event. The Old Fashioned Family Fun Day will run from 9:30am 2pm, and promises to have many 'old fashioned' games for both children and adults to partake in, photo opportunities and great food options. Some scrumptious tasty treats are being supplied by Jhar Binx & Zave Kids.
Maleny Dairies' Old Fashioned Family Fun Day is an opportunity to dress-up (yes, adults too) in vintage clothes (think the 1940s and 1950s), play some games and loll about on old sheds, tractors, green rolling hills, classic vehicles (provided by the Blackall Range Horseless Carriage Club), antiques and other props for some gorgeous old-time photography (you can even have photos with some of Maleny Dairies' farm animals).
Some of the games played will include 'find the needle in the haystack', 3-legged races and sack races. There will also be baby animals to pat and feed, face painting, hula hoop lessons with Lisa from Smile Hoops and jumping castles from Casper Jumping Castles to enjoy. Cloudland Dress Ups have also put their name forward as a suitable costume store to provide vintage costumes for patrons to wear on the day.
Maleny Dairies' Old Fashioned Family Fun Day is an event to raise money for the Sunny Kids charity; a charity that believes every child should have the opportunity to reach their full potential, regardless of their circumstance. Sunny Kids works with disadvantaged children and families to provide homelessness services, kids clubs and playgroups for under-served children; youth suicide intervention and prevention education; food safety and nutrition education; children's workers in schools; learning clubs; fund raising and children's programs resources.
