Why is Sustainable Living based at Bellbunya?

Environmental groups throughout the Sunshine Coast hinterland have been calling for a Centre for learning and teaching sustainable practices.  With a large hall, restaurant, commercial kitchen and accommodation for medium size groups, Bellbunya’s Eco-Conference Centre is perfectly placed to host workshops, retreats and demonstrate sustainable systems and technologies.

We believe that the Centre has potential to bring together a range of initiatives aimed at creating a sustainable future.  Through partnerships with other groups and businesses interested in exploring aspects of sustainability we can achieve so much more than in acting alone.

We hope that people engaged in supporting an ecologically sustainable and conscious future will join us in supporting and utilising the centre.

With 40 elevated acres, high rainfalls and abundant surface and ground water, the property is ideal for showcasing and teaching sustainable eco-agricultural practices.  The centre’s low-food mile restaurant promotes the benefits of local, ecological food growing and healthy eating.  

Already plans are mobilising to use the centre to promote renewable energies, clean technologies and low pollutant transport alternatives.  Workshops now in the pipeline include electric car conversions, making wind-turbines from washing machine parts, small building designing, and cob-building.
It's great to be part of the hub.
