Welcome to the future

Villawood’s sustainability imperative is evident in its award-winning innovation and coal-face delivery of renewable and bill-saving services.

These include solar-driven gas-free precincts, industry-leading new water technologies, embedded microgrid networks and a block-for-block biodiversity offset program unmatched by anyone in the industry.

Villawood works hard to ensure its communities are socially sustainable as well, with specially targeted facilities and infrastructure along with a generous, and sharply community-focussed, philanthropic program.

We take a holistic approach to sustainability for better economic, environmental and social outcomes for all our communities, for our business and for the world at large.

Positive Change

Villawood’s environmental initiatives help to improve and preserve our natural environment for future generations to enjoy:

  • Since 2008, Villawood has gifted the equivalent in total size of each residential block it sells to the beautiful Kamarooka Forest in the Greater Bendigo National park. So far, we have gifted 5,786,500 square metres of land – around 290 times the size of Melbourne’s MCG.
  • As well as being critical habitat for indigenous flora and fauna, the forest is home to the bees that produce Villawood’s delicious brand of honey. A tub of this honey is gifted to every new purchaser in one of our communities.
  • An average of 1,600 trees a year are planted in our communities on regular tree planting days for residents. Thousands more are planted in the Otway Ranges by our survey contractor Lyssna, in partnership with Gellibrand Landcare.

Securing our water supply

Villawood supports government initiatives that help to secure water supplies in years to come.

  • In 2006, we launched Aquarevo, Lyndhurst in partnership with South East Water. It was recognised for water and energy efficiency by the UDIA across six areas of sustainability – water, ecosystems, community, waste, materials and energy.
  • In 2003, we introduced recycled water at Marriott Waters, Lyndhurst helping to earn four leaf EnviroDevelopment accreditation.
  • Since then, we have delivered recycled water to 10 more Villawood communities.

Community Sustainability

Supporting charities is integral to the Villawood spirit. Each year, the Villawood Foundation helps dozens of organisations, sports clubs, neighbourhood and community groups with assistance ranging from financial grants through to good old fashioned elbow grease.

Villawood works with numerous bodies across Victoria, South Australia and Queensland. This work ranges from actively seeking out community groups lacking the profile to attract larger sponsors through to its flagship philanthropic initiative, Melbourne’s Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday Appeal Charity Home Auction, which this year realised $1,010,000.

We also work with Henley’s Queensland arm, Plantation Homes, to deliver the Mater House for Life charity auction. The latest of these raised a record $1,489,000 for premature and critically ill babies.


Villawood’s philosophy is to make buying a home accessible to families and First Home Buyers. Every family is different, so we offer a range of lot sizes and mixed density in all developments to improve affordability and cater to all demographics and budgets. We also work closely with our builder partners to offer the most cost-effective build solutions and improve affordability.

Some of our most recent initiatives include:

  • The Care Workers Support Package – financial assistance for those who care for others.
  • Participation in the Housing Affordability Fund (HAF) program to assist potential homebuyers in breaking the rental cycle
  • Staging of ballots at Aquarevo to help families secure new homes at a fair price in the face of high demand
  • Updating of sales contracts to block unfair practices by speculators.

Ecorevo: Breaking New Ground For Sustainable Housing

Villawood’s Aquarevo, already Victoria’s most water-sustainable residential development, has gone 7-star with the final release of lots at its Lyndhurst community – marking a key sustainability breakthrough for the mainstream new housing market.

Aquarevo’s new Ecorevo precinct features 7-star energy efficiency and bill-buster savings through a range of siting, size and orientation initiatives in contemporary home designs by leading builders. It rounds out an extraordinary, award-winning collaboration between Villawood and South East Water in the 470-lot project.

While 6-star energy efficiency is the current industry standard, few developers have attempted to step up to 7-star in a mainstream suburban residential project. Ecorevo represents an important breakthrough in the evolution of more sustainable mainstream housing. It is even moreso for its ongoing collaboration with South East Water.

Powering Up with Microgrid

Villawood’s Solstice microgrid at its Rathdowne community in Melbourne’s north is opening the way to securing Victoria’s energy supply via suburban rooftops.

The Solstice’s technology allows its homes to operate off the grid for substantial periods of the day, slashing owners’ energy bills by some 50 per cent. The microgrid also sends electricity back to the main grid, helping keep lights and air-conditioners running elsewhere in Melbourne during high-demand periods such as hot summer days.
