Crystal Waters Eco Village 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 seen as a beautiful Australian Wildlife Sanctuary. We’re home to a wide variety of local flora and fauna including numerous kangaroos and wallabies, as well as many types of birds and reptiles – we share our land with nature. We believe that our “No Cats & Dogs” policy has created this environment, which is conducive to nature, and therefore provides us with a peaceful living experience.


With over 230 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 on the 1st Saturday morning of the month and provide a lovely village atmosphere with live music. Each Market Day features a lovely range of Foods served from the Kitchen at the Deck area. The famous sourdough Bakery is open, serving coffee and pastries and selling fresh sourdough bread. Flowerpot Coffee Shop on The Deck is open each market day (and other days) serving a range of drinks, treats and small meals. Other Food and refreshments are available throughout the markets, and a variety of market stalls pepper The Village Green with interesting items and verve, complementing our great Live Musical talents.

Be sure to visit us on one of our Village Market days, or when other events are being held. All welcome!

Crystal Waters administration has both a Body Corporate to manage common property, Roads, Dams and Land Management plus a Community Co-operative which runs the Community areas and EcoPark visitors area, Village Markets and an annual Permaculture Design Course or PDC.

No Dogs or Cats

Crystal Waters is also a wildlife sanctuary and has a policy of “No Dogs or Cats” on Crystal Waters land, as such, please be aware of this Policy when you are visiting. Many species of birds as well as kangaroos and wallabies abound on the Crystal Waters property.

Getting Here

Important – Most GPS systems direct you to take Postman’s track. This is a narrow, steep and potentially dangerous road. Large Vehicles or Caravans are not allowed. We strongly recommend you take the Maleny-Kenilworth road option instead! Coming through Maleny is a good way to go.
