When in the area we always have lunch or morning tea. It is reasonable priced and nice food. The history of dairy is well displayed. They have a gift shop and suitable for children it shows them the traditional milking

Not a lot of options for lunch in Malanda but this served us well. A grilled barramundi, salad and chips at $20 was both enjoyable and reasonable value.

Wow what a reception as you enter this dairy centre and approach the staff to order your meal, they are such wonderful and helpful people we have encountered on our travels. The meals are also great and generous. The museum is also very educational.

On a day trip through the Atherton tablelands, we nearly bypassed Malanda. However if you are coming through and need some replenishment, the Malanda Dairy Centre do delicious scones and milkshakes. It is a large restaurant with a small gallery attached. Can thoroughly recommend.
