Event Description

Sustainable House Day, this Sunday

9 September, 10am - 4pm

Sustainable House Day is this Sunday and there are a few great opportunities for valuable learning across the coast.

Now in it's 11th year, Sustainable House Day continues to showcase some of Australia’s most sustainable homes to the public as millions of Australians continue to embrace renewable energy, recycling, and other practices suited to their lifestyles.

At Living Smart we are also excited to let you know there are new resources being developed that focus on sustainable housing design and housing choices. We plan to release the first stage in a few weeks, within the new neighbourhood module, so stay tuned!
