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.
For Learning & Entertainment
The Eco Expo offers FREE eco workshops, sustainability seminars and free demonstrations.
We have some returning guest speakers and some exciting new speakers this year, with notable speakers such as, environmental cowboy; Khory Hancock, the plastic free mermaid; Kate Nelson and Kira Simpson speaking on how to Ditch Fast Fashion, Shop Sustainably, and Reduce Your Fashion Footprint.

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’.
Visit the Wildlife HQ Zoo where there will be up close and personal animal encounters available, see the world through the eyes of a faerie with the Fairy Lady where you can learn how to cure the forest and the oceans from what is making them sick or go along to the Recycleman’s show where he teaches children about the importance of environmental awareness and sustainability through the use of songs, costumes, games and visual aids.
Come along to the Eco Expo
Australia continuously faces unprecedented social and environment changes, with climate change threatening epic disruption and hardship on a global scale. The Eco Expo operates as a gateway to the flourishing green market in Australia by hosting an array of local and national exhibitors that offer products and services to help our region make greener choices.
The aim of this event is clear – visit the Eco Expo to find exhibitors taking one or more steps toward making their company and products more sustainable.
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.
