After the fabulous Maleny Wood Expo, we have some gorgeous events coming up in our little hinterland town, and visitors are very welcome! Our recommendations for the weekend of 6 and 7 May offer solace for the body and the soul.
Saturday 6 May, 0930 to 11.30, join a Fermentation Workshop for a delicious introduction to hands-on fermenting, hosted by Maleny IGA, at the Maleny Community Centre Verandah Room. The workshop will cover easy and simple fermentation techniques to use at home, including kefir, sourdough bread (spelt & wheat), cultured coconut yoghurt, sauerkraut, fresh Greek yoghurt, and cultured butter. The cost is $40 (includes a $30 voucher to spend towards any Mad Millie product). Be quick to book in for this one, here. (Photo courtesy of Unsplash)
Saturday 6 May, on World Pilates Day from 0900 to 10.30am, come to a free Pilates Class (and Espresso!), at the Maleny Yoga Centre, behind Monica’s Cafe on Maple Street. Qualified Pilates Instructor Bec Seres will guide you through a full Pilates class, followed by local espresso coffee from Monica’s Café and a chat. It will be a fun and informative opportunity to experience one of the safest and most effective forms of movement for health and well-being. Book online here, 24 hours’ notice required.

Sunday 7 May, 2pm to 5pm, the Maleny Arts Council presents Iain Fred Smith and his Dust of Uruzgan performance – a collection of songs during his two years working as a diplomat and political advisor alongside Australian Forces in Uruzgan Province, Afghanistan. A stunning series of projected photographs from Afghanistan accompany his performance of songs from the album. As well as photographs and songs, Fred weaves in stories of life on the base, and of living and working in Uruzgan province. This event will be held at the Maleny Community Centre Hall, Maple Street, Maleny, book here.
