Living Off-Grid Blog

Our blog is a mixture of posts from our exhibitors, sponsors, and people living off the grid.

We will try to cover as many topics and useful information as possible. With new innovations coming through all the time as the popularity of the off grid lifestyle grows, we are happy to hear from anyone who has an interesting story or some great ideas.

You can email me directly at shakya@offgridexpo.com.au or give me a call on 07 5486 6279 as I would enjoy hearing from more people around the country.
