Redefining Creative Learning

Zone Gallery and Creative Hub is born out of a desire to provide a place of creativity, education and exhibition for creatives such as artists and photographers.

Offering exhibitions and workshop space, creative workshops throughout the year, and a special 2 day retreat amongst the stunning scenery of Maleny, we hope to inspire artists to create and build their creative business. Our custom built gallery and studio is surrounded by stunning scenery, and is just 1.5 hours from Brisbane.

The space can also be hired for exhibitions, workshops, or small conferences.

A unique and dedicated space

Gallery and Creative Hub

The Gallery and Workshop space is housed in a modern 25×12 metre studio, featuring glass doors along one side taking in the beautiful Maleny landscape. We have all the modern facilities you might need to host your creative workshop, and at reasonable prices. We can also host your next exhibition during the months of March/April/May and September/October/November.

A fully renovated chapel is also on the grounds and can be used for air conditioned workshops and photography classes. We are 2 minutes away from the legendary One Tree Hill, as well as access to other properties in the region featuring run down sheds, stunning forests, and secluded dirt roads.

We have parking for up to 30 cars, toilet facilities, and we can assist you in sourcing catering if required.

Professional Photographers & Artists
25 Years Professional Experience

We are Cath & Rich Muldoon

We have been professional photographers for over 25 years as Vivid Photography, our successful Brisbane based business for 23 years. Through all the changes seen in the photographic industry we have grown our business, all the while winning many awards including 2015 AIPP Queensland Professional Photographer of the Year.

Almost 3 years ago we decided on a ‘tree change’ relocating to Maleny in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, and developing The Zone to assist artists & photographers in realising their creative and business potential.

Richard Muldoon is also an artist/painter with a Masters degree in Visual Art, and has received many awards for his contemporary paintings and photography.

Catherine Muldoon studied professional photography for 3 years achieving a Bachelor of Photography, and is an AIPP Master of Photography.

We have two children Daniel and Freya, two Border Collies Lucy and Charlie, and a Rag Doll cat called Opie. We love being creative, inspiring creativity, and helping artists reach their potential.

Centrally Located

the heart of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland

The Zone is located in the Sunshine Coast hinterland just outside the popular village of Maleny. Situated on 2.5 acres of rolling green hills and farmland, visitors have access to a custom built 25×12 metre ‘shed’ housing a photography and artist’s studio. Used also for workshops and exhibitions, the ‘shed’ overlooks gorgeous paddocks and a lake, inspiring creativity and relaxation.
