Open Studio Trail October
Please Note: We have a special Trail this month as some studios are open both days, others are only open on the Sunday.
Five artists are welcoming visitors at the end of October. Come and meet Barb Willcocks, Wendy Edmond, Judi Parkinson, Annie McIntosh and Nita Lester. Their paintings and merchandise are created with a variety of interesting techniques and mediums, including watercolours, acrylics, oils, photography and pastels to name a few. You’re bound to find something amazing to buy for your home or as gifts.
The October Studio Trail runs across The Blackall Range from Peachester and Maleny, through Flaxton and onto Mapleton. The gardens and scenery are all beautiful across the Sunshine Coast Hinterland all year round but especially during Spring.
OPEN Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th, 10 am – 4 pm
Barb Willcocks – Watercolour Artist
My studio is part of my home. The property faces east to ever changing views overlooking Buderim and the ocean. Once in my roomy driveway you will find my studio by walking through the pergola down to the sliding doors. There is plenty of car parking in the driveway or on the very wide footpath at the front of the property. Disabled access is also available.

Therefore, due to that commitment their studios will be ONLY OPEN Sunday 30th, 10 am – 4 pm

When you get to the top of my drive just wander along the lawn, then pass the rose gardens to reach my studio in the backyard. It’s a large shed with a mezzanine floor and different works spaces and has been recently renovated to include a new gallery area.
There is reverse parking along the driveway. Limited parking and turning at the top so we prefer to keep the area free for disabled access please. Bus turning is further down the street at a T-intersection.

Annie McIntosh – Artist
Annie McIntosh lives on a farm outside Peachester fulfilling the dream of painting her surrounding landscape and environs. Over the years she has accumulated a lot of ideas, and now cannot paint fast enough or often enough. Her large garden is a constant source both of solitude and vitality—the rambling plants, the light and shade, the enormous variety of life.
