Sustainable House Day is Back for 2023!

Kira Simpson

If you’ve ever been curious to see what a sustainable home actually looks like, now is your chance.

Sustainable House Day is back for 2023, with over 130 environmentally progressive and consciously designed homes opening their doors around Australia on Sunday, the 19th of March.

You’ll have the opportunity to walk through participating homes with the opportunity to speak with the owners and builders about how they designed and built their homes with the climate and environment in mind.

“Sustainable House Day provides the opportunity to explore some of Australia’s most unique and inspiring homes, and learn from the people who designed them, built them, and live in them.”

Open Homes around Australia

From passive design and native gardens to flood and fire-resistant and NatHERS-rated. You can find the full list of participating homes and gardens here. 

Free Online Sessions

In addition to the open homes, Sustainable House Day is also hosting a series of free online sessions on Sunday, the 19th of March, with homeowners and experts coming together to discuss a range of topics from sustainable design on a budget to lowering energy bills, and understanding solar and battery storage.
