Tour of the Randwick Sustainability Hub
In Randwick, a community centre has been turned into an innovative sustainability hub - a learning and demonstration centre imagined around the sustainable use of water, energy and food. 

The centre has been retrofitted for energy and water efficiency. A photovoltaic panel array, wind turbine, interior improvements to energy and water use, a range of rainwater tanks and PIG (Permaculture Interpretive Garden). The centre also features The Classroom, made from recycled materials and a Balcony Garden Display area.
