NATURAL BUILDING AUSTRALIA TENT

SUSTAINABLE DESIGN - NATURAL MATERIALS - PASSIVE HOMES - OWNER BUILDS - TINY HOUSES & MORE!

Proudly brought to you by Natural Building Australia

In 2024 we'll be launching the new Natural Building Australia Talks Tent – the ultimate hub for sustainable design, natural materials, passive homes, owner builder info, tiny house and more!

 

With the housing crisis looming large, we're on a mission to connect trades, spark inspiration, and shake up the Aussie housing scene. This tent will be an educational and immersive space within the festival where passion meets knowledge, and people are inspired to take sustainability into their own hands. 

The Natural Building tent and its adjoining space within the festival serve as a dedicated hub where attendees can immerse themselves in sustainable design, owner-built homes, and natural building practices. The curated schedule features talks, meet-and-greets, and demonstrations, creating a streamlined and engaging experience for festival-goers. By providing a centralized platform to learn, connect, and discover, the Natural Building Australia Talks tent aims to contribute to a collective effort in shaping a more sustainable and resilient future for Australian housing.
