Aquarevo’s technology smarts breaking new grounds in residential living

Sustainable Communities

Sustainability in terms of community, resources and environment are articles of faith at Villawood. We are at the industry’s leading edge in seeking out new technologies, designs and adaptive ideas that can be replicated across Australia.

Leading by Example

Villawood creates more liveable, more resilient, communities by reducing energy and water use, managing carbon emissions and building people connections.

Villawood leads by example, donating a block of bushland to national forest for every residential block it sells. Its award-winning Aquarevo community is cutting water use by 70 per cent and non-renewable energy by 60 per cent.

Villawood also provides an industry-leading array of facilities, resources and events to assist community growth by greater resident interactions sand connections.


Australia’s most water and energy efficient urban community, Aquarevo is an award-winning collaboration between South East Water and Villawood.  It delivers water savings of 70% and non-renewable power savings of 60%.

As Water Minister Lisa Neville says: “Aquarevo is setting new ground. It is a great example to other water authorities to be really thinking outside of the square and working with organisations like Villlawood.”

Land Transfer

Villawood donates a block of bushland to the Kamarooka Forest, in the Greater Bendigo National Park, for every block of residential land it sells. To date, this remarkable offset has seen more than 250 hectares – 5500 lots or 625 acres – of land designated as critical habitat for local indigenous flora and fauna.

Cleaner, Greener

Villawood is constantly searching for new ways to reduce our carbon footprint, to ensure a cleaner, greener future, while building stronger community ties.

This means everything from formal EnviroDevelopment certification, residents clubs, playgrounds, wetlands and landscaping to low-energy street-lighting, recycling, tree-planting, university competitions, zero-emission housing roadshows and ventures and extensive purchaser advice.

“Aquarevo is setting new ground. We’ve talked a long time about how we have urban development that saves water, that has water as a real focus. This is in action and I think it will set in train future developments similar to this. It is a great example to other water authorities.”
Lisa Neville
Former Minister for Water
“These sorts of projects are incredibly important because they speak to why we want to do planning in a way that is sustainable going forward. (With Aquarevo) you are on the threshold of one of the most exciting developments that the government has had the opportunity to approve.”
Richard Wynne
Former Planning Minister
“We’re so blessed here in Bendigo to live in a major regional centre that’s surrounded by the Greater Bendigo National Park. This land transfer initiative is expanding this beautiful bushland.”
