The annual Eltham Mudbrick Tour takes place this year and showcases a range of classic mud brick houses. The open house tour has a long history, beginning in 1964 under the direction of mud brick house pioneer Alistair Knox. Today there are over 1,000 mud brick houses in the Shire of Nillumbik, allowing a different houses to be showcased each year. This is an opportunity to learn more about Nillumbik’s earth building heritage and the importance of Eltham builders, designers and architects in the development of the Australian alternative housing movement.
