Retrosuburban House & Garden Tours

Do you want a comfortable home that costs nothing to run? Energy efficiency is key! How about self-reliance in fresh food? It’s easier than you might think.

Transition Warringal presents local house and garden tours showcasing energy and water efficient design and retrofits for sustainable living.

Over a 2 hour visit, tour participants hear the household’s experience of designing for energy and water efficiency and self-reliance. We tour a range of houses each year to present a variety of solutions.

Tours include morning or afternoon tea and bookings are always essential.

Would you welcome a tour at your own retrosuburban/energy efficient/sustainable/tiny home? Express interest in being a host for our Retrosuburban House & Garden Tours by email transitionwarringal[at]
