Visit homes within the Beechworth (North East Victoria) area that illustrate elements of sustainable house design. Be presented with elements of passive solar design including orientation, thermal mass, ventilation, insulation and zoning, and talk with owners and builders.  The 2008 houses included rammed earth, poured earth and strawbale examples.

Our aim is to showcase sustainable houses within a 10 kilometer radius of Beechworth that show certain aspects of sustainable house design well. While all the houses will show many aspects of sustainable house design, we have chosen the houses, we think, that best reflect certain aspects of sustainable house design.

Saturday 14th November, 2009, 10am to 3pm.

Tickets cost are $15 for adults, $25 for a couple (2 adults) and children under 16 are free. Cyclists receive a 50% discount.  Tickets can be purchased from the Beechworth Neighbourhood Centre, 30Ford Street Beechworth.

Visit the website for more details, including accommodation in the area.
