Welcome to the Eco Expo
“Let’s Save the World”
The Eco Expo is not forcing you to take drastic measures, but instead encouraging each of us to take at least one eco step toward being more sustainable. If we all take one step then as a whole, we can make a significant difference.
The Eco Expo offers free eco workshops and sustainability seminars are open to the public. Previously we have had notable guest speakers such as legendary Sea Shepherd Captain Peter Hammarsted; sustainable gardener, Kate Wall; vegan activist, Scott Wallace; and Isabella Morand speaking on the Australian Conservation Foundation’s strategy to put climate damage on the agenda at the next Federal Election.
The 2018 Eco Expo featured the ‘Progressive Picnic’, a dining experience where guests could enjoy delicious foods accompanied by organic and vegan wines. Celebrity Chefs and MKR winners Emily and Alex prepared an exquisite lunch, with TV climate change guru Khory Hancock, also known as ‘The Environmental Cowboy’, by their side hosting the experience.
The Eco Dining Experience will be back in 2019. With a delicious menu and incredible organic drinks, you will be left wanting more! Stay tuned for details on the 2019 Eco Dining Experience.
With the Brisbane Eco Expo returning in 2019, new stalls and food lover experiences will be available!
For foodies that are wanting to find eco-friendly choices to every day alternatives, a dedicated sector will be open offering food and wine options that are chemical-free, natural, fair-trade, gluten-free, certified organic, and non-GMO. In 2018, the Eco Expo had the pleasure of having several food stalls on board including ‘Tatty’s Superfoods’, ‘Carabean’, and ‘Peace Love Crepes’.
Who doesn’t love the idea of a gourmet three course Eco Dining Experience, paired with wine!? The Eco Expo held it’s first Dining Experience – The Progressive Picnic daily in the VIP lounge, which was hosted by Brisbane eco event superheroes The Commune Space, along with The Environmental Cowboy. The 3 course asian inspired menu was designed by recent TV winners and celebrity chefs Alex and Emily, and was paired with delicious vegan and organic wines from ‘Raw Vine Estate’ and ‘Tamburlaine Organic Wines’.
The Eco Dining Experience will be back in 2019, with delicious food and incredible organic drinks, you will be left wanting more! Stay tuned for more information so you don’t miss out on this great dining experience.
The ‘Vegan Pop Up Market’ run by the Brisbane Vegan Market crew, along with vegan cooking demonstrations on stage are available for people conscious about their health, wellbeing, and how their diet impacts the environment.
This year, families were able to access a range of fun and engaging ‘How To’ workshops and performances for kids to inspire our future generation, including activities with Scouts Queensland as well as ‘The Recycleman’.
Mini movers and shakers such as 14 year old environmentalist and worldwide eco activist, Holley Somerville Knott, and Arlian Ecker known as the Plastic Free Boy, also held seminars to teach parents and children about the importance of leading an eco-friendly lifestyle.
Join the Eco Expo in 2019 for bigger and better activities and performances for the whole family!

Brisbane is Australia’s most biodiverse and sustainable city. It is also Australia’s fastest growing region, meaning we need to continually be smarter about how we manage finite resources, our space and waste, as well as looking to sustainable systems.
