We were driving from Brisbane to Noosa with time to spare and found this amazing garden and bird aviary which is well worth a visit by anyone in the area.  www.malenybotanicgardens.com.au

The 16 acre gardens have been developed by one man over recent years, and it has been named as one of the 6 best gardens in Asia-Pacific region. Was easy to spend a day here wandering around the gardens, admiring outstanding views of the glasshouse mountains, and watching the cheeky birds in the aviaries.
