Sustainable House Day offers people the opportunity to explore Australia’s most inspiring homes, and learn from the people who designed them, built them, and live in them. And this year, we’re back in person.

If you have a sustainable story to share and think that you can help inspire and inform others, please consider taking part by opening your home on April 21st 2024. Applications are now open!
