Tucked away in the hidden valley near Conondale, but only a short trip from Maleny and the Sunshine Coast, Crystal Waters is the perfect venue for gigs, workshops and small festivals.
Saturday Morning Coffee: The wood-fired sourdough bakery is open EVERY Saturday from 8am-1pm for bread, coffee and pastries. Treasures also opens on Saturday mornings, our “2nd hand” shop, come and check it out! Treasures is open from 8 to 1.30 on big market days and 9 to 12 on other Saturdays.
So if you’re nearby, pop in for a pleasant morning with the locals supping a great coffee and munching on one of Les’ extraordinary sourdough croissants. The Crystal Waters Markets provides a wide range of Stalls, Food and interesting wares. Eftpos: Conondale store, 9km.

Other Recent Events.
With the likes of U.S. Drumming sensation Chris Berry, Melbourne’s Rapskallion, Brisbane favourites Kooii, Byron jazz six-piece Red Bantoo and Tibetan acoustic fusion trio Tibet2Timbuk2 all gracing The Deck with their presence recently, we’re able to provide entertainment that is as good as much larger venues.
Perhaps it’s the natural setting, or the warm friendly vibe, but both performers and audiences have commented on how different it feels here with the music drifting out over the smiling faces and into the night.
We regularly host workshops on everything from Permaculture design, drumming, creating healthy relationships, personal development, dance, making sourdough bread, innovative building design, and holistic health.
