Designed to showcase the beauty of Australian native timbers and the work of the Sunshine Coast's best timber artisans, the 2006 Maleny Wood Expo will also promote the eco-lifestyle from April 29 to May 1 at Maleny Showgrounds in the beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

Talk to the artists about their superb creations fashioned from sustainably harvested native timbers, recycled timbers and weed timbers. From rustic bush styles to contemporary designer furniture, there is something for everyone.

The Maleny Wood Expo is a great day out for the whole family. Bring the 'chips off the old block'! Teenagers can visit the Maleny Music venue and hear local youth compete in rap, beat box and band competitions. The little splinters can take home their very own recycled musical instruments.

See the award winning entries from across Australia in the Wootha Prize 'Seat For One' Exhibition.

Watch the sawdust fly with live chainsaw carving and mobile milling.

Pick up some tips from the EcoLifestyle exhibitors to help make your home more sustainable. Learn about everything from straw bale building and waterwise gardening to fuel friendly transport. Do the right thing today and leave a lighter footprint for our children tomorrow!

Aspiring woodies can watch woodworking experts demonstrate equipment and techniques from the past to the present. From the early timber cutters who came to the Blackall Range to harvest the mighty red cedars to today's talented artisans, they all share a love of beautiful timbers.

Whether hunting for home décor items or stocking your pantry with local culinary delights, you will take home a unique Maleny souvenir.

With daily EcoTours, the Soapbox Theatre, superb local music, food, environmental and historical displays and more, Expo visitors can relax and have a great day out in the beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

Park for free at the Showgrounds and jump the shuttle bus to take in the Maleny Quilt Show and the Maleny Arts and Crafts Show in town without parking problems.

Entry is $10 for adults (includes free parking). Youth under 16 are admitted FREE.
