Sustainable House Day

COOLmob received a grant from the City of Darwin Council to become a community partner and run Sustainable House Day (SHD) virtually on Sunday 20 September 2020. This year was the ninth year COOLmob have run this event in Greater Darwin. 

For more than 20 years, the national event run by Renew, 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.

Tune into 6 virtual tours from around Darwin

Check out the virtual tours below with home owners and tenants to hear and see how they've built and retrofitted their homes to be more suitable for our hot and humid climate, to be energy efficient, comfortable without air-con and for passive design inspiration.
