HOTEL MALENY - Over 100 Years In The Sunshine Coast Hinterland
For the past 100 years, the Hotel Maleny has grown and changed with the Maleny community. The hotel was the community’s meeting place for loggers, bullock drivers and farmers and their families to swap stories, debate local politics, conduct business, or simply share a drink, a meal and take time out from the trials and tribulations that belonged to living the life of a Maleny pioneer. Over the last 100 years, the ownership and management of the Hotel has passed though different hands, changed direction and with time and the merging of generations, the perception of the residents of “their Hotel” has changed.
The Maleny community has grown over the years to become home to a diverse range of people whose life experiences and opinions can differ from one another, be it culturally, socially or politically. The Hotel has always strived to maintain its role and place within the community by quietly changing, growing with and endeavouring to meet the needs and expectations of the wider community and local organisations and charities who need a helping hand financially or physically.
The time has come to change directions once again and put the perception of being "just the pub" to bed, jump on the roof and beat the drum, letting the community know just who we are, how good we are, where we are headed and how we will cater to and meet the diverse needs and expectations of the community! Most importantly, we want to demonstrate, that we are "Much more than a club, better than a pub, the new social hub!"
Over the next year or so the Hotel is going to go though some extensive changes and will be in a much better position to accommodate a whole range of activities and incentives that will benefit the wider community. There will be a drive though bottle shop, more accommodation, a function / multipurpose venue and a gourmet wood fired pizzeria.
The Hotel also offers itself to couples who want to share their wedding day with friends and family in comfortable, friendly surroundings where everything is available for a fabulous wedding reception at one stop and at a price where you will have something left to take with you on your honeymoon or go towards that mortgage on your first home. If you are planning for a business meeting, function, fundraiser, celebration or simply a get together, give the Hotel some consideration and you will be happily surprised!
Hotel Maleny will always be part of the Maleny and sunshine coast hinterland community and will continue to play a positive and generous role within it. So take the opportunity to pop in and join us in celebrating the hundred year old journey the Hotel and this community have travelled together, and once again revel in the spirit of solidarity, friendship, tolerance and the optimism for the future of our community that those early settlers experienced so many years ago.
