Having loved the Sunshine Coast Hinterland and its surrounds for many years, Kelly and Jason Pini were looking for a business with great potential, that also suited their family, lifestyle, and interests.
Originally from Papua New Guinea, it was important to Jason and Kelly that their move didn’t take them too far from the mountains or warm weather. The community feeling of Maleny, it’s climate and handy location to Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast made Maleny the perfect place to relocate.
When a business that ticked all the boxes became available in 2014, Kelly and Jason jumped at the opportunity and Kelly quickly went to work re-branding and applying her ideas, style and event experience to recreate The Garden.
Along with their five beautiful children, Lukah, Tully, Olive-Poppy, Hunter and Maeve, Jason and Kelly have brought their love of nature and vision for a family friendly business to The Garden, Maleny for all to enjoy.
