Sustainable House Day

Sustainable House Day (SHD) is a major national event showcasing some of Australia’s most sustainable homes to the public. Geelong Sustainability has been coordinating Sustainable House Day for the Geelong region for 7 years supported by the City of Greater Geelong and local sponsors. 

SHD gives people the chance to get a real-life look inside houses that have been designed, built or retro-fitted with sustainability in mind. People value highly the opportunity to talk directly with home owners who provide unbiased practical information and insights. 

In 2015, Geelong Sustainability is organising two major events during October:

1) Greener Living Exhibit at the Royal Geelong Show from Thurs 15th - Sun 18th October

  • Sunday - renewable energy experts, beekeepers and gardening gurus
