Maleny’s most photographed private paddock, may also be the biggest charity earning paddock in Australia?
Owned by The Woods family, One Tree Hill donates all proceeds to charities and has donated over $40,000 since it opened to the public.
‘The entire Maleny community is my family’ says Mrs Florence Woods. Florence is a long time local resident arriving in Maleny with her husband Frank.
The Frank family believed that if you don’t need anymore, then you give it away and have been donating proceeds from One Tree Hill into the Maleny Community since 1917.
Over 20 years there have been thousands of brides and grooms use that sacred spot.
That charitable organisations that have benefited from this gesture are Maleny Solder Memorable Hospital, The Maleny Men’s Shed, The Maleny Show Society, Maleny Centaur Cadets, The local school Chaplains, Senior Citizens plus any in the community suffering tragic circumstances or just in need of a helping hand.
A simple bush tree perched on the edge of the majestic Glasshouse Mountain view has given so much, to so many.
Choose a professional photographer, who will arrange entry and pay the $50 charitable donation at the address on the gate mate. And please, as you enter, do tip your hat to Frank as a sign of thanks, and stop and ask for his permission to do, so just like his Grandkid’s still do, out of pure respect to one of Maleny’s founding fathers.
