Sustainable House Day is on this Sunday 12th September all around Australia. To find out where the open houses are in your area, click here.
Houses are open from 10-4 pm and are free. Just look out for the balloons.
You get to have a look at how different houses are rigging up solar panels, harvesting water, recycling, gardening and many more things. Lots of info to be had, and a good opportunity to find out what is happening in your sustainable living community.
Anyone in the Sydney area that is interested in having a look, a list here of all the houses.
We’ve got one of those here in Bristol this weekend too! Coincidence or maybe it’s a world wide thing?

What a great idea – love it. Until I read Joanna’s comment above, I was about to say I hadn’t heard of anythign similar here except for one I went to a couple of years ago at Totnes , which was the first Transition Town, so only to be expected really.
This is such a cool idea. We’re lovers of all things Green in our household!
And Joanna – there’s one in Bristol? I live in Bath so might have to pop along! xx
Joanna- that is a funny coincidence. How wonderful if it was a world wide thing down the track.
Choclette- it is a great idea, I really hope it brings in a lot of people on Sunday and does some inspiring.
Nell- I would love to know how it went if you do go along. Glad Joanna could point you in the right direction 🙂
Thanks for the heads up on this one. I am going to get to a sustainable house near me. There is also the Randwick Ecoliving Fair on the Sunday 19th September with lots of emphasis on bike riding as transport.
Nicky the eco living fair I went to last year and it was pretty good. Had some amazing bikes there- dual carriage for the kids. Very enticing
My absolute dream home would be to incorporate as much ‘green energy’ as possible. Did you catch that interesting section on House & Garden (I think) about those guys who’ve made a huge group of B&B huts using hay & mudbrick. I want….
Thanks for sharing this too.
ahhh Anna. This is something I would truly truly love to do as well. A B&B made out of straw bale or adobe building- so many possibilities. I didn’t see this particular program but have watched all bar the last series of Grand Designs- which has some great ideas in there as well… so many dreams…
ah, I’ll be working this weekend so hopefully we’ll see a few posts about this! would someday love to build our own home, completely green!
