In the heart of the city of Adelaide there is a small ‘urban village’ of 27 homes and gardens on 2,000 sq m (half an acre). It was named Christie Walk to honour the memory of Scott Christie, an environmental activist. The development combines many ecologically sustainable and community enhancing features.

It was initiated by UEA in 1999 as a demonstration project, to promote nature and people friendly urban development by example and was completed in December 2006. The goal was to create a liveable, affordable and environmentally benign urban community that provides a practical prototype for the ecological development of our cities.

The project consists of 27 dwellings which include linked four three-storey townhouses with full solar orientation, a three storey block of six apartments with east-west orientation, four individual cottages, and a 5 storey apartment block facing onto Sturt Street, with a community room/ kitchen/dining/meeting room/ library, and toilets on the ground floor.

One and a half hour public tours of this award winning ecological housing development, happen every third Sunday of the month at 11am. Come along and see energy and water conservation in action.

Christie Walk site tours have been held since February 2001. If you wish to visit the site, see inside individual dwellings and learn all about ecological design and construction, please phone Urban Ecology on 08 8212 6760 and leave a message.

Bookings are essential as minimum numbers apply. Please book at least 2 days before event in order to avoid disappointment.
