  • Description


    Veronica here from "Magical Maleny" in the green rolling hills of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, South East Queensland. Where the slogan is "Beautiful one day, perfect the next" I would like to welcome you to come and experience being ecologically friendly. To learn about the importance of connecting with nature, the earth, the environment around you. Eat clean food, drink clean water, breath clean air and feel the difference it makes to your body, mind and soul. Learn the vibrant history of our community, be artistic, understand how growing food organically is vital for good health. Come and help out and share in the benefits of life in the country. If you are in this area, you must come to Maleny for a while.

    If you want to improve your English, I can help you. If you want some peace and quiet and a healthy lifestyle, this is a good place for you. If you want beautiful scenery with a community feel. Artists and alternative thinking, you will find Maleny interesting. Time and space to discover yourself and what you want to do, who you want to be. etc. etc. I hope you like children as my Grandchildren are often around and sometimes like to interact with visitors. We have an old Golden Retriever, Chickens and Guinea Fowl. Pick organic herbs and veg everyday.

  • Help


    Gardening is the main thing, weeding, mulching, planting, pruning, herbs, vegetables, fruit trees, forest and lots of flowers. If you have any building skills you can help with many projects around the property. Landscaping with stones, rock walls, steps, pathways. Small buildings etc. Artistic, creative types too. General maintenance of a rural property. If it rains you can help keep the house clean so you don't get wet.

    There are Rainforest walks, swimming holes and waterfalls a short hike away. Maleny town is within walking distance. There are buses to the beach and train station. We are just one hour north of Brisbane, an hour south of Noosa, 40 mins from Alexander Headlands and Maroochydore - the centre of the Sunshine Coast.
