Welcome to the Maleny Visitor Information Website – http://maleny.qld.au 

This website and our Visitor Centre are supported by grants from the Sunshine Coast Council.

Our website covers Maleny, Blackall Ranges & Surrounds ie north to Eumundi, south to Caboolture, west of the Bruce Highway and east of Kilcoy.

We are a not-for-profit, long-standing, independent community service, run by volunteers with limited opportunity to raise funds to cover our rent and expenses.

In 2014 we were asked by Maleny Commerce to build and manage a comprehensive Events Calendar for What’s On in the region.  We wanted it to include not only the larger Expos and Festivals but also the weekly ongoing gatherings covering Arts & Crafts, Health & Fitness, Sporting groups and other community events in this region.  The Event Calendar we built can be viewed by month, week, or day.

However so comprehensive was the list of events that it would have flooded the calendar, so a decision was made to separate out the weekly and fortnightly events/classes etc.  These are now found under Local Activities and presently include over 120 items long.  They can be filtered by Location, Type of Event, Venue, Day of the Week, and Time of Day. Listings in both of these areas are free. 

We have also added a direct link to the Sunshine Coast Library events. If you have an upcoming event please let us know either by email to maleny-web@westnet.com.au or drop a flyer into the centre in Maple Street.

We have also added businesses in the other sections – Things to Do; Where to Stay, Where to Eat, Weddings, and Local Business – including Wellbeing businesses.  This shows everything we normally provide in the shop – however we have many more to load.

As we are a Community based website we have included a Discover Our Community section promoting the community groups in the area.

We initially used the brochures we had in the centre to add businesses to the site, however we intend shortly to pull together a marketing team to help gather other information from the out-lying towns.  (We have a small number of ‘digital’ Volunteers who help input the information into the web but are also looking for Volunteers for the marketing team.  If you are interested we offer very flexible working hours and already have Centrelink Volunteers.)

We have added a direct link to the Apex Business Directory however we have yet to add such things as history of the area, transport, parks, walking trails, schools, hospitals and other emergency information under as part of ‘About our Region’.

We endeavour to keep our information up-to-date, so we would appreciate an email to advise us of any updates or changes to the information displayed.  Your feedback is also welcome. 

We can be contacted by telephone on 07 5499 9033 or by email to maleny-web@westnet.com.au
