The main entrance foyer of the Sustainable Buildings Research Centre is our public exhibition space. This space is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm and all are welcome.

This space displays the key facts about the SBRC and the Illawarra Flame House. Various research prototypes and project posters are on display as well as our interactive digital signage.


The SBRC hosts public open days and community tours to educate the community on our important work in sustainability. We showcase our research equipment as well as our industry partners and researchers who are available to tell visitors all about many of the exciting projects taking place across the Illawarra. This includes tours of the Illawarra Flame House and more recently exposure to the new Desert Rose House, our award winning entries into the Solar Decathlon!


Self-guided tours of the Sustainable Buildings Research Centre are free to be taken at your leisure. This informative tour is a great way to find out all about the SBRC building and some of the exciting research we are doing.

We encourage everyone to visit our building and take the tour. Download our self-guided tour guide.
