Maleny Wood Expo
Sat 5th May, Sun 6th May & Mon 7th May 2018
Queensland Labour Day Long Weekend
Gates Open 8:30am
Started in 1996, the Expo was the brainchild of Queensland ranger and passionate Landcare supporter, Ashley Sewell. Designed to promote sustainable use of our beautiful native timbers through the work off local and regional wood artisans the Expo is now recognized as one of the best wood shows in Australia. Please join us for three days of clean country family fun at Maleny Showgrounds.
View the amazing range of lovingly crafted timber products, and meet and talk to the craftsmen and women who’ve created them. With work by furniture-makers and toy-makers, musical instrument-makers and box-makers, whittlers, carvers and everything in-between, there’s something to suit every taste and budget.
Glimpse the skills of the timber cutters who ‘opened up’ the region, and catch up with the very best in both hand-crafted traditional and high tech tools.
Smell the distinctive spicy aroma of newly milled timber and watch live demos of chainsaws, woodworking, trade tools and more.
Annual QUOTA Quilt Show
The Annual Quota Quilt Show will be held on the May Day week-end at the Maleny High School Activity Centre. As well as an array of beautiful quilts on show, you’ll find plenty of quilting advice available from stall holders, as well as great quilting supplies, and several interesting displays. Visitors can also expect a mini cent sale – and the famous Quota Cafe will make sure visitors don’t go hungry.
