McLaren Vale Green Hub tours

McLaren Vale & Fleurieu Visitor Information Centre

McLaren Vale and Fleurieu Coast Visitor Centre is our southern green hub demonstration site.  It showcases the type of energy efficient upgrades and systems that households can put in place to reduce energy and water consumption, waste to landfill and greenhouse gas emissions.

Take a self-guided tour using the Green Hub trail maps available from the centre or for larger groups book a tour and be inspired on changes you could make at your home to be a little greener and save money in the process.
