Brisbane Holiday Village has a Green Star Rating
of 4.5 Stars and has also achieved a Gold Gumnut Award
(the highest rating under this nationally recognised program) as well as Industry Accreditation
from the CRVA (Caravan, RV and Accommodation Industry of Australia).
According to government statistics, water heating is the largest single source of greenhouse gas emissions from the average Australian home, with electric storage hot water systems accounting for around 23 per cent of household emissions (excluding the family car).
At Brisbane Holiday Village, all of our electrical appliances are energy rated and we have installed Solar Hot Water Systems into about 85% of our cabins as well as in our Housekeeping and Reception area which conserves precious energy resources.
We have insulation in most of our cabins which makes the winters a bit warmer and the summers cooler. This in turn lowers energy consumption.
We have installed water saving devices throughout our park and most of our plants are drought resistant so they require little water which helps to reduce our water consumption. We also have a bore and various water tanks around the Village utilised to irrigate all the gardens.
