Sustainable House Day


Open the door to sustainable living by touring some of Australia's most environmentally progressive homes on show at Sustainable House Day on Sunday, September 17, 2017. This unique peer to peer education is a valuable resource for anyone looking for inspiration, ideas and the key to sustainable living.


For more than 10 years, Sustainable House Day has provided a great opportunity for hundreds of thousands of people to visit some of Australia’s leading green homes – ones  that are not only environmentally friendly, but cheaper to run and more comfortable to live in.

Sustainable House Day gives visitors a chance to inspect firsthand houses that have been designed, built or renovated with sustainability in mind as well as the opportunity to talk to owners and receive unbiased advice. Register here to attend Sustainable House Day 2017 and to receive information in advance of the day. Once you have registered there is no need to register in subsequent years.

In 2016 17,287 people visited 154 homes across Australia. Online and print media stories reached a targeted audience estimated at over 160,000,000 million (based on circulation/readership figures).

Sustainable House Day is an event of the Alternative Technology Association (ATA). The ATA is a not-for-profit organisation that exists to enable, represent and inspire people to live sustainably in their homes and communities. Established in 1980, the organisation provides expert, independent advice on sustainable solutions for the home to households, government and industry.  The ATA also produces the high-quality magazines, Sanctuary: modern green homes and ReNew: technology for a sustainable future to provide ideas and inspiration on how to make your homes and lives more sustainable all year long.
