OFF GRID means many different things to many different people.

For some it may mean disconnecting from public utilities, for others it is choosing to live in a self-sufficient manner.

People are choosing to change the way they live their lives.

Some embrace the Tiny House Community or become travelling Nomads, while others move off grid.
The reasons are varied but include reducing the cost of living and minimising the impact we are having on our planet.

More and more people are choosing to grow their own food and learn old crafts and skills to enhance their lifestyle methods.
Crafts such as weaving and spinning, bread and cheese making, pottery and carpentry, reusing, recycling and repurposing.
Many people now support themselves financially by creating their own income stream through utilising their own passions and skills.

Join us for a weekend exploring the lifestyle choices of off grid living in all its forms.
Our country has wonderful individuals and businesses developing innovative ideas to help people live comfortably off grid
and we look forward to showcasing them at our Off Grid Lifestyle Expo.

Showcasing a diverse array of sustainable living ideas and new technologies.

We happily provide the opportunity for the following to be a part of our event.


The Expo is an opportunity to meet individuals with experience who are happy to share knowledge and pass on some tips and tricks.

Our aim is to connect people with community groups and businesses to help you achieve your dream. There are many steps to the process and not everyone can just dive in and leave it all behind and start again. Some have to work up to it, making changes where they can. If you like the idea of living off grid but aren’t sure where or how to start, then visiting our expo and talking to likeminded people is great way to begin.
