August Work Party and Workshop at Maleny Eco Village
Time & Location
About The Event
Monthly 'work parties' are held at the Maleny Eco Village, where we get to know each other, learn and care for the land. This will be a popular place to live, and our work parties are the first step in our membership process.
WHAT TO BRING
- protective clothing (hat, work glove, closed in shoes-gumboots/work boots, insect repellent)
- snacks to share
- water bottle.

In dry weather, drive down the entrance at 37 Centenary Drive and follow the signs to the parking area. Alternatively, street parking is available at the end of Ribbonwood Avenue cul-de-sac. (pedestrian access only - please don’t block driveways and do not park on council land). Carpool if you can or come by public transport. Post in the comments if you want to find someone to travel with or have room in your car to bring others.
Catch the Nambour train to Landsborough station. There is a bus that connects at the train station that goes to Maleny (it will wait if the train is delayed). The bus terminates at Coral Street (outside the library). Walk up Coral Street in the direction of travel and along the Maleny Trail/Obi Obi Creek boardwalk towards the showgrounds (Entrance is about 200 meters to the left from the Library) and cross the sports field towards the “Rangers Football Club”. Walk on the dirt road for about 50 meters. The road will turn sharply to the left over a causeway. Don’t take that. Our gate is on the right.
The village is a building site at the moment, and there are many hazards. Please be careful.
We are excited to share the day with you. Any questions, just email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Claire on 0439 532 299.
