A large influx of people searching for a cooperative lifestyle migrate to Maleny every year.
Step out of the city life by going to Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve and Obi Boardwalk. Venture out of the city with trips to Glass House Mountains (Glass House Mountains National Park & Parrots in Paradise), Nambour (The Big Pineapple, Dulong Lookout ( Kanyana Park ), &more) and Maroochy Wetlands Sanctuary Reserve (in Bli Bli). There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Maleny Botanic Gardens & Bird World, take in the awesome beauty at Mount Ngungun, explore the striking landscape of Conondale National Park, and stroll around Mapleton Falls National Park.
