Crystal Waters Eco Village

Crystal Waters Eco Village is set in 650 acres of bushland at the headwaters of the Mary River, only 26kms from Maleny. The privately owned village includes residential and cooperatively owned commercial properties designed along Permaculture principles, and is home to a wide variety of local flora and fauna. The Crystal Waters Community Cooperative is the social and economic arm of the village management and provides facilities for visitors to participate in and experience the village life. To appreciate what Crystal Waters has to offer, we recommend taking a guided tour, or staying with one of our accommodation providers. These include the Village Camping Area, a great place to get away, which has camping, bunkhouse and cabin options. The Crystal Waters Country Market, held on the first Saturday each month, is renowned for its friendly and relaxed community atmosphere, live music from local artists and idyllic rural setting at the gateway to the Mary Valley. Children enjoy the play area. Chat with the stall holders about their local produce & handcrafted wares. Among them you'll find fresh organic veggies, sourdough bread direct from the wood-fired oven, cakes, dips, plants, seedlings, honey, clothing, massage, reflexology, face painting and bric a brac, delicious meals, snacks, chai and coffee.

We arranged via email camping we where emailed the site number after we had left home, so with no internet it was impossible to find the manager site. It is a dirt track in and out only single vehicle, definitely not suitable for any time of teardrop or camping van. The ameniti

It's small but had that authentic day out for the family vibe. Cool live music. Decent coffee yummy treats. Great second hand clothes. Not so much a farmers market, although a few choices. More of a lovely day out. And check out the surrounds. The eco village is a very cool pl

3rd visit in a decade, hoping for that magic that was rumoured to be there.
It wasn't.
There was 1 good stall staffed by entertaining couple prepared to engage with the passing people and demonstrate their offerings.
Most of the other stallholders "couldn't give a stuff" and eng

"Didn't stay there just went to the monthly market"
"Quiet place"
"The bunkhouse where we stayed is a wonderful, elevated, wooden structure which could potentially be noisy if full, or occupied by children. For the record it wasn't noisy, nor full the nights we staid. I think camping in your own tent of van (or the one cabin) would be the go if you want to guarantee a very quiet night - the surroundings are totally peaceful and full of nature."
