World Green Building Week - Sustainable Sydney Walking Tour

Join the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) and Better Buildings Partnership (BBP) as we celebrate World Green Building Week with a guided walking tour of Sydney City taking in some of the CBD’s most sustainable buildings. Led by sustainable built environment experts from the GBCA and BBP, the Sustainable Sydney Walking Tour is a street level exploration of six green building icons as well as the green spaces between. You’ll walk the city and hear how green buildings are contributing to a greener inner city community and setting best practice examples for sustainability in urban environment.

Join one of our daily walking tours to see and hear the stories of:


  1 Bligh Street – world leading design including an “Australian first” double skin façade (6 Star Green Star – Office Design v2 and 6 Star Green Star – Office As Built v2)

  30 The Bond - links Sydney’s sustainable future with its colonial history, featuring one of Sydney’s oldest convict-hewn sandstone walls (5 Star Green Star – Office As Built v1)
  One Shelley Street - characterised by its striking and unique “net” facade (6 Star Green Star – Office Design v2 and 6 Star Green Star – Office As Built v2)

  Darling Quarter – two world class buildings which are the feature of the $500 million Darling Quarter development precinct (6 Star Green Star – Office Design v2 and 6 Star Green Star – Office As Built v3)
