About Glenferna: at 1010 Maleny/Landsborough Rd, was built as a farmhouse by Edward Thynne on land purchased from Isaac Burgess in 1902. It was registered as a Receiving Office for Mail from 1904 – 1912. Edward Thynne sold the property in 1912 and several dairy farmers lived there until it became a Mater Art Union Prize Farm in 1976. The winner tenanted the farm & house for years; Glenferna has been home to many families over the decades.
