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 More 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.
