Where is Malanda?
Malanda is located about 25kms southeast of Atherton. It resides in one of the wettest areas of the Atherton Tablelands, and is surrounded by pockets of rainforest and rolling hills . Freshwater creeks flow through this region, culminating in waterfalls that cascade into refreshing swimming holes. The principle reason for Malanda's existence is the Tropical North Queensland dairy industry. The local dairy factory provides the major source of employment here, and is supported by 52 local dairy farmers. The dairy products sourced from this town travel along the longest milk run in the world, reaching south to Townsville, west to Alice Springs, north to Darwin and overseas to New Guinea and South East Asia.
Malanda is home to one Lions Club and one Lioness's club. Population of Malanda is around 1,000 people. Our club has served the Malanda Community since 1965.
The Club meets on the 1st and the 3rd Wednesday of the month at the Malanda RSL Club. The 1st meeting of the month is a dinner meeting at 6:30pm amd the 2nd meeting of the month is a business meeting (no meal) at 7:30pm. Meetings generally close at around 9pm.
Please contact our Club Secretary, Ted Griffin for more information on our meetings on 4096 6112 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
