Description

The approved Redlynch Eco Resort is bounded by Freshwater Creek and the World Heritage listed Dinden National Park and is within the 500 metres of the Crystal Cascades. The resort consists of a number of Eco-Villas scattered throughout the site in a series of lightweight, ecologically sustainable building ‘pods’. Standards and guidelines of the Green Building Council of Australia were a useful reference tool for the design of the resort, with the intent to gain green star ratings to all the proposed resort buildings.
