    Community event

    The Festival was first held in 2010 as a community celebration of the remarkable diversity of birdlife on the island.
    The four day Festival is jointly presented by the Bruny Island Environment Network, BirdLife Tasmania and Inala Nature Tours, drawing on the wealth of knowledge and experience of experts in these groups to provide both an engaging and educative immersion in the natural delights of Bruny.  
    Held every two years, the 4 day Festival has become a much anticipated event by the community and visitors alike. Each Festival brings new features and long-term favourites. In 2018, the Festival will continue to build on the four key elements of Community, Conservation, Science and Creativity to further involve the people of Bruny and Tasmania in the many tours, walks, workshops, lecturers, markets and cultural celebrations that are the Festival.

  • How to get the most out of solar panels in Tasmania

    Sustainable Living event
    • Tuesday, October 23, 2018 at 01:00 PM
    • Sustainable Living Tasmania, 1/71 Murray St, Hobart

    If you are looking for a solar system and want to know what's best for you - then this session is for you.  You'll be able to ask questions and benefit from our latest research.

    How good an investment are solar panels? Should you get batteries too? What size system should you get? How much does it matter which direction the panels face? Which tariff should you use? We will answer all of these questions and more, drawing upon detailed modelling and analysis of solar panel systems in Tasmanian conditions.

    Todd Houstein will facilitate the session. He is a self-confessed energy nerd, and has been our Executive Officer since 2010. He has an engineering degree, and postgraduate research experience in techno-economic optimisation of energy systems. He has also worked in community development, humanitarian engineering, research & development, product design and manufacturing.

    This is one of a number of lunchtime workshops on solar:
