About Sustainable Upper Ovens

Sustainable Lifestyles in the Upper Ovens Valley

Sustainable Upper Ovens is an organisation aimed at helping householders, small businesses and visitor service providers to adopt improved energy efficiency measures, switch to renewable energy and maximise opportunities to reduce, reuse and recycle our resources. The Upper Ovens Valley covers a considerable part of the upper catchment of the Ovens River, from Ovens through Porepunkah and Bright to Germantown, Freeburgh, Smoko and Harrietville, incorporating the Buckland Valley and Wandiligong Valley.
