Tours for Noonameena will start every hour on the hour, starting at 10pm with the last tour starting at 3pm
Noonameena is an owner-built, strawbale ‘SITUP’ prefab panel, Certified Passive House Institute Low Energy Building located on the banks of the Coliban River in central Victoria.
When planning got serious, I discovered what Passive House building was all about and thought ‘why doesn’t everyone build like this?’ I loved it so much I got trained in Passive House design and now offer services and an Airbnb experience to anyone who wants to see, feel and enjoy what a thermally efficient, well-constructed home can be.
Directions and information about visiting Noonameena. Please note we are located on a rural property in a sheep farming area. Please:
- Shut the gate when entering or leaving as we have 24 sheep cutting the grass for us
- Take care in all areas as we have many rocks throughout the property. If it has been raining the sides (off the driveway) will be very soft, please stay on the raised gravel areas only. Follow the driveway keeping left and park at the area sign posted BEFORE you get to the silver shed. If you require closer drop off please continue down the driveway keeping left all the way to the house. Keep left as you exit; note it is single lane driveway.
- Take care with children or anyone not steady on their feet, there is an area of the house exposed to a steep drop off. These areas will be signposted.
- No pets please
All donations form the day will got to Whitelion, to give young people the pride, courage and opportunities to change their lives.
