Sustainable House Day gives people the opportunity to see inside houses that have been designed, built, renovated or retro-fitted with sustainability in mind. Geelong Sustainability has been coordinating this event with support from the City of Greater Geelong for 8 years. This year we're also assisting houses to open in Golden Plains Shire.
The 2016 program is looking like our best ever! With 14 homes opening across suburban Geelong, the Bellarine and Golden Plains Shire on Sunday 16th October.
Get inspirational ideas and practical advice from the home owners and local experts. At many locations, you'll find architects, builders, renewable energy experts and permaculture/gardening gurus who will be providing conducted tours and/or sharing their expertise.
You will be able to tour newly built, energy-efficient homes opening in Ocean Grove, Armstrong Creek, Bannockburn, St Leonards & Indented Head.
For people keen to learn about how to go off-grid, don’t miss the homes opening at Inverleigh and Little River. While anyone thinking about going gas-free should visit the volume-built home at Armstrong Creek.
If you are planning a renovation or just wanting to retrofit your existing home to make it more comfortable, then you should visit the homes opening in Newtown, East Geelong, Manifold Heights & Wallington.
For the garden lovers you’ll find that most homes also have productive gardens and many have chickens and some have ducks. If you want to learn more about permaculture, then you should not miss wandering around the amazing gardens in Thomson, Manifold Heights, Wallington and Bannockburn.
