Crystal Waters Permaculture Ecovillage 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 an Australian wildlife sanctuary. We’re home to a wide variety of local flora and fauna, including numerous kangaroos and wallabies, and many types of birds and reptiles. We share our land with nature and believe that our ‘No Cats & Dogs’ policy has created this environment, which is conducive to nature and provides us with a peaceful living experience.
With over 250 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 are a great way to experience our village atmosphere. A variety of market stalls pepper the Village Green, complementing our great musical talent. Meals are also available.
+ Visit the Flowerpot Coffee Shop for breakfasts on Market days, Saturdays, and throughout the week.
+ A range of venues and spaces are available for hire at Crystal Waters for permaculture projects, or your next workshop, celebration, or wedding.
+ Crystal Waters administration has both a Body Corporate to manage common property, Roads, Dams and Land Management plus a Community Co-operative that runs the Community areas and Eco Park camping area, Village Markets and an annual Permaculture Design Course (PDC).
