Travel to the Maleny Botanic Gardens and the Mary Cairncross Rainforest Reserve on this tour from Noosa Head. Admire views of the Glasshouse Mountains from the gardens and look for wildlife in a subtropical rainforest. Be picked up from your accommodation in Noosa Heads and enjoy the scenic drive to the Maleny Botanic Gardens which is nestled in the green hills of the Blackhall Range. Marvel at views of the Glasshouse Mountains and stroll through local and exotic flora.  Bask in the tranquility of the Asian garden, climb the treehouse, and stroll beneath an arched walkway. Have the option to purchase tickets to go into the aviary. Refuel with late morning tea and scones before heading to the Mary Cairncross Scenic Rainforest Reserve. Admire one of the last remnants of subtropical rainforest in the Blackall Range. Listen for the distinctive loud call of the Wompoo fruit dove, the wailing-baby cries of the green catbird, and the call of the almost-invisible paradise riflebird.  Discover a rich ecosystem of bugs, frogs, squirrel gliders, and flying foxes. Finish your day with a stop at the Barrel at Clouds Vineyard for a nice lunch.
