Solar Panels: Eco-friendly sustainability on the rise at BHV

Being sustainable and responsible for the environment is becoming more and more important in this day and age. That’s why Brisbane Holiday Village have installed solar panels in a grid system to help us be as environmentally sustainable and as eco-friendly as possible!

Solar Panels – the new black?

Let’s face it, solar energy is definitely the future trend of energy. These days, many households have converted their homes to run on solar energy – So why not power our business?

Brisbane Holiday Village now boasts a 50 KW solar panel system that powers our main business buildings! Our Reception, Maintenance and Housekeeping buildings are all powered by the SUN!

Why did BHV invest in solar?

  • Energy Alternative – and renewable
    Solar energy is a great alternative to replace fossil fuel as the major energy source is the sun, which is (luckily) renewable at absolutely no cost!
  • It’s environmentally friendly – pollution free and no greenhouse gasses
    We believe that effort should be made to reduce the pollution entering our environment. Solar panels are able to catch the energy from the sun and convert it to electricity! This means that  solar energy uses less carbon = less coal = smaller carbon footprint!
  • Low/no maintenance
    Once installed, solar panel systems can last twenty to thirty years without major maintenance needed! Sure, a check once a year is ideal, but still, a penny saved!
  • Cost effective
    Less electricity and power is taken from the power grids in the community. This makes actually makes solar cheeper! The upside is that we can spend all the extra money that we saved on maintenance and power grid costs and put it towards new facilities for our holiday park!

BHV’s Sustainability Awards

Brisbane Holiday Village has won many awards over the years. One of our proudest achievements is our Gold Level Gumnut Award. The Gumnut Award Program is a progressive rating scheme for holiday, tourist and residential parks that recognises a proven commitment to

environmental sustainability and social responsibility.

To make sure that BHV is part of the environmental solution rather than the problem, we have employed the following initiatives:

  • Installed bore water pumps to minimise the amount of town water used for maintaining the gardens.
  • Planted native trees and shrubs to attract native animals and buffer traffic noises and dust.
  • Fitted low flow shower heads and half flush cisterns.
  • Utilised tank water for the washing machines in the Housekeeping Department.
  • Upgraded two amenity blocks with low flow shower heads and taps; duel flush toilet systems and urinals; gas boosted solar hot water system; solar tube lights and front loader washing machines (saving 100 litres of water per cycle).
  • Installed light sensors, timers and solar hot water systems in all holiday cabins.
  • Provided on-site paper, plastic, glass and cardboard recycling bins.

Caravan made from LEGO bricks is breaking records with BHV!

Caravan made from LEGO™ Bricks is coming to Brisbane Holiday Village in September 2018, and we want you to join us!

Our journey starts with a thousand bricks

Many of us today think of our humble LEGO bricks and remember a time when we were young. Think back to the spaceship, castle or pirate ship that you built out of LEGO. Do you remember that it was SO good that it belongs on the cover of TIME magazine? Let’s face it – who didn’t fancy themselves as a creative genius when it came to those little plastic bricks with which to build the world (quite literally)?

Big dreams have blossomed from those colourful bricks, but always on a miniature scale. We never had enough LEGO to build that life-size spaceship. castle or pirate ship.

Until now…

LEGO isn’t child’s play anymore

Like all wonderful creations – a man had a dream. Take one 1973 Viscount Royal vintage caravan and over 280,000 LEGO bricks and make the World’s Largest Caravan.

It took over 10 weeks, 500 man-hours, 700kg of LEGO bricks, 70 litres of glue and a team of over 16 incredible volunteers.  The caravan is 2.2-metre-tall and 5-metres long. It comes equipped with a double bed, wardrobe sink, stove, refrigerator, dinette, cupboards with sliding draws and other features typical of a 1970’s caravan. The best bit? It is ALL made out of LEGO bricks!

The Caravan was started in March 2018 by professional LEGO builder Ben Craig in his garage on the Gold Coast and was funded by the Caravan Industry Association of Australia and Top Parks, with the intent to break the Guinness World Record for the largest caravan made from LEGO bricks at the 50th Anniversary of the Queensland Caravan Camping & Touring Supershow earlier this year.

Due to circumstances beyond their control, the caravan remained incomplete by the show’s end.

For a project that cost in excess of $100,000 (by comparison, a 1973 Viscount Royal would have cost around $2000 brand new), the creators were not to be dissuaded – the Caravan is coming to Brisbane Holiday Village!
