Printmaking Workshop Location – Maleny
My printmaking workshops are held in my own private art studio in North Maleny, just 3-4 minutes drive from the heart of the Maleny township.
A little over an hour’s drive north of Brisbane, Maleny is located in the Blackall Ranges of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. It is a small town steeped in tree felling and dairy farming history, and home to many artists, art galleries and art workshops.
Workshop parking is easy … there is parking for 3-4 cars in the parking bay next to the driveway. There is also street parking on the grass at the front of the house.
If you stop in town before or during your workshop, parking in town can be difficult on weekends. Maleny is a very popular tourist destination. If you have trouble getting a park in the main street, park behind the IGA; entrance off Teak Street.
How to get Maleny
Approximately two weeks before each workshop I send an email with the workshop studio address, map and other workshop details. In that email is a Google link. Maleny itself is very easy to get to, as is my studio in North Maleny, just 3 minutes drive from the heart of the Maleny townsip.
Driving up from Brisbane
The Maleny township is approx 92km north of the Brisbane CBD – allow up to 1hour 30mins to drive from Brisbane. On a good traffic day the drive from the top of the Gateway Bridge is approx 1 hour 10 mins.
When driving up from Brisbane, head north up the Bruce Hwy then take the left turn to Steve Irwin Way, following the signs to Beerwah and Landsborough. You’ll drive past Australia Zoo. Once you get to Landsborough, follow the signs to Maleny from there, about 15mins from Landsborough.
Coming from Maroochydore or Caloundra
If you’re heading up to Maleny from the Sunshine Coast coastal suburbs, make your way to the top end of Steve Irwin Way and drive south to Landsborough. Drive into Landsborough and follow the signs to Maleny from there.
Heading to Maleny from Toowoomba, Kilcoy or other western towns
Depending where you’re coming in from, you can rive into Brisbane and north up the Bruce Hwy from there. The drive up the Brisbane Valley Highway through Esk and Toogoolawah is a lovely drive too.
Below is link to Google maps that you can use to help you work out route and timings to get to Maleny. I email the workshop address 1-2 weeks prior to the workshop day.

Maleny Eats and Accommodation
Maleny is full of coffee shops and great cafes to eat delicious food. Its hard to pick a favourite, but there is one that makes THE BEST gluten free chocolate brownies I have ever eaten – Shotgun Espresso! Great coffee, great people, great meals and great brownies!
Do you want to consider accommodation options for before and/or after your workshop? There are so many different accommodation options in Maleny – catering to a range of budgets.
Email me with any questions about where to stay, venues and budgets. I live in Maleny, so I’m not across all accommodation options from a visitors perspective, but I can help with some suggestions that meet different budgets; and I can provide feedback from past students who have stayed at different accommodation options across the hinterland.
