Besides the above stated, there are still all the old favourites including seedlings, herbs, native trees, home baking, jewelry, fresh vegetables, fermented foods, soaps, massages, face painting and more. The emphasis is on fair trade, hand-made by the owner, local produce and organic.

For rummagers, Brick-a-Brac Lane is a feast of up-cycled, recycled and second-hand goods. The wood-fired bakery serves sourdough croissants and pastries and a great selection of organic sourdough bread.

Local musicians will entertain throughout the morning. To join them, contact Tom for a place at the open mic.

Crystal Waters Eco Village is set in 650 acres of bushland at the headwaters of the Mary River, only 26kms from Maleny or Woodford. The Village includes privately owned residential lots and co-operatively owned commercial properties and was designed along permaculture principles.

The Village is classified ‘Land for Wildlife’ and is seen as a beautiful Australian Wildlife Sanctuary. We’re home to a wide variety of local flora and fauna including numerous kangaroos and wallabies, as well as many types of birds and reptiles – we share our land with nature. We believe that our “No Cats & Dogs” policy has created this environment, which is conducive to nature, and therefore provides us with a peaceful living experience.

With over 200 people of all ages living in Crystal Waters, and hundreds more in the local area around Conondale, Witta and Maleny, many of us enjoy regular events on our Village Green or on ‘The Deck’. The popular monthly Village Markets are held the 1st Saturday morning of the month and provide a lovely village atmosphere. The famous sourdough bakery is open, serving coffee and pastries and selling fresh bread. Meals are also available at the markets, and a variety of market stalls pepper The Village Green with variety and verve, complementing our great Musical talent. Be sure to visit us on one of our market days, or when other events are being held. All welcome!

Ben Messina is an Australian Landscape and Nature photographer based the Sunshine Coast Hinterland Australia. His ability to capture inspiring imagery originates from the beauty that surrounded him whilst growing up in Cairns, Far North Queensland.

Wanting to share the picturesque landscape, Ben began his photographic journey. From the age of ten, he captured his first images on a Pentax K1000, using Black and White film. Being the son of an established, professional photographer, he was fortunate enough to have his fathers experience and a fully functioning Black and White darkroom at his fingertips. Ben turned professional at the age of eighteen, capturing everything from cutting edge commercial photography through to portraiture.

However, his true passion has always been for landscape, beauty waiting to be captured.  Concentrating on gathering a collection over many years, his talent has flared with time.

Ben took the courageous step of opening his first gallery in Cairns, in 2004. It was so successful that he now has work displayed in private and corporate collections all over the world. With the phenomenal response to his first gallery, Ben expanded to Brisbane, where he opened a gallery, named Gallery M in the heritage-listed Brisbane Arcade in 2009. In 2012 Ben opened his 4th and largest signature gallery Ben Messina Landscapes at 3/41 Maple Street, Maleny. Visiting Ben’s Maleny Gallery you will find a large selection of Ben’s most popular Australian landscape photography images, both large framed panoramas and large canvas prints.

Ben’s images are available in editions of 100, 200 and 450 and are printed on the finest archival photographic materials available. All images appreciate in value as the editions sell out.

Ben’s collection of panoramic images have heart, emotion and amazing depth. And his journey continues. . .
