Tools, timber and tiny houses


With a dynamic program on offer, a full house of exhibitors, and some new features built into the program this year, the return of the Maleny Wood Expo is set to be a fantastic weekend for the whole family to enjoy!


The Maleny Wood Expo, which is hosted by Barung Landcare over the Labour Day long weekend, is in its 24th year. It is the local Landcare group’s biggest fundraiser of the year and focuses on promoting the sustainable use of our beautiful timbers.


All funds raised help Barung Landcare deliver its environmental activities across the Blackall Range and surrounds.


This year, the Maleny Wood Expo will not only feature its long-term favourite exhibitors and collective of family-friendly workshops, but new additions to the program. These include a Tiny House exhibit showcasing a range of sustainable living options, the launch of an electric car raffle, an impressive lineup of speakers on a range of sustainability topics, and incredible local musicians and street performers.


Another exciting feature of the Maleny Wood Expo is the Sunshine Coast Wootha prize. Sponsored by Sunshine Coast Council and with a cash first prize of $10,000, this “competition with a conscience” will showcase woodworkers and artisans from all over Australia who have submitted sustainably designed pieces.


“This year we received the most applications we have ever received,” shares Sunshine Coast Wootha Prize Coordinator, Corrie Wright.


“There are many new artists who have entered this year, and the quality of their sculptures, furniture and miniature works is of a very high standard. We are excited to bring you this year’s exhibition.”


The Maleny Wood Expo will be held over the weekend April 29 - May 1, to book your tickets or for more information visit malenywoodexpo.com (Pictured: A kids cubby built with Kris Martin.)
