On Sunday, 15 September, 2019, more than 235 homes will open around the country for the biggest Sustainable House Day in the event’s 15 year history.

This national event gives people a rare view into exceptional homes designed, built or renovated with healthy and environmental living in mind and allows them to speak to and learn from homeowners. Held annually since 2001, the event has been run solely by Renew since 2017.

“Everyone wants a home that is well-designed, healthy, and runs efficiently in an age of high energy bills,” says Donna Luckman, Renew CEO. “Sustainable House Day allows Australians to see real homes that have achieved this, and get unbiased advice on how to make their homes more comfortable and cheaper.”

There are innovative and beautiful sustainable homes to visit in every corner of the country, from Victoria to Queensland. All kinds of sustainable homes will be open to visit, including Certified Passive Houses, houses built from natural materials like hemp and strawbale, and homes that will also feature an electric vehicle.

No matter what your interests or location, there’s something for you at Sustainable House Day. Visit the Sustainable House Day website to search the hundreds of open homes by postal code, state, or feature, register to attend, or sign up to volunteer.
