to one of Australia's most sustainable Wood Expos

Established in 1996 by Barung Landcare, the Maleny Wood Expo promotes the sustainable use of our beautiful timbers through the work of local and regional wood artisans. The Wood Expo is Barung Landcare's biggest fundraiser for the year, with all proceeds from ticket sales going back into future Wood Expo events and regional projects that help protect our local environment.

The Maleny Wood Expo is now recognised as one of the best wood shows in Australia, and has been bringing wholesome, family-friendly fun to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland for over two decades. 2024 marks the 25th year of the Maleny Wood Expo!

The Maleny Wood Expo hosts a range of fun and immersive activities for all generations to enjoy!

As well as the feature exhibition, the Sunshine Coast Wootha Prize – a prestigious national woodworking competition - there are wood workshops for all ages, kids activities, live music, delicious world food, fine coffee, interactive tool and trade displays and more! You can even take home a freshly milled slab!
