With a 6-Star ‘Green Star’ accreditation from the Green Building Council of Australia, our Brabham Estate offers a Waterwise Front Landscaping Package that aims to save homeowners up to 50% of their total water usage in their gardens.

The estate houses Brabham’s Green Homes Display, Australia’s most sustainable two-storey display home*.
