Welcome to Lucy's collection of ideas and adventures designed to inspire others to get off the couch and explore our local environment.
Event: -
The Sunshine Coast Hinterland is renowned for its artistic community and unique handicrafts, so why not head along to Maleny to learn all about working with wood from the locals? Maleny Wood Expo is hosted by Barung Landcare and has plenty to keep wood enthusiasts entertained.

Sawdust will fly as millers turn trees into usable wood - red and white cedar, camphor laurel, white beech, rose gum, black bean, blue quandong, and other native and weed timbers will all be available for purchase. Head over to a Wood Shed workshop to learn to make a coffee table or stool. Buy a handmade wooden gift or learn about Australia's Wood Heritage, observing almost forgotten timber felling skills, which early settlers relied upon.

An important part of the Maleny Wood Expo is dedicated to sustainable living, protecting biodiversity and discovering the benefits of farm forestry. All this will make you hungry, so pull up your haybale and enjoy Maleny's fresh produce - there will be plenty of food stalls, a Landcare BBQ and $2 from every cup of Montville Coffee will be donated to local landcare.

From Chainsaw to Fine Furniture, Maleny Wood Expo will be fun for all the family. For kids, there will be face painting, candle making, art workshops, roving street performers, and a haybale maze. The Maleny Music tent will keep toes tapping with gypsy trio, Great Scott and Gypsy Loco, Noel Gardner, Hayden Hack Infusion and Tommy Leonard.
