Event Details

Touch and Feel Three Strawbale Homes

Are they as incredible as people say?

Start at Bulli Tops [Near Wollongong], then we're off to:

1. This is an incredible home to see 

  • Big timbers using NO nails (100 year old skills)...

  • Straw bales

  • Cob internal walls (earth, rammed earth regulates temperatures)

  • Marrakesh in the bathroom (no tiles it's a waterproof render)

  • Cool finishes 

  • Architecturally designed with coastal views 


The SECOND home Is another special treat.

This home near Bowral got rated a whopping 9.9 stars using a Sydney climate zone. It blew us away. It's got the top medal - Platinum - for it's carbon lifecycle/footprint. 

It's full of strawbales, mudbricks, curved walls (even in the shower) and cob walls. 

The permaculture garden they have is insane


The THIRD home is an architecturally designed home

It's strawbale, got those big old age timbers in it and cob walls. 

They're all so different and will inspire you with all of their ideas. 


Please arrive at Bulli Lookout at 8:45 am sharp. We'll stop along the way for lunch or you can bring your own. 

Our last tour sold out 6 weeks BEFORE the tour started!

We had 22 people on the waitlist. Seriously.

So book in, it's not a gimmick to get you to book, we will sell out.

It's just $88 for a day's worth of learning, meeting other cool people and inspiring you to take action.  

We're team focussed, that means everyone travels on the bus with us (no separate vehicles), we'll talk about how we did it with question time in between homes.

It's worth getting a baby sitter for those with children.
