Melbourne Home Show - Tiny House Expo

Get inspired strolling through a street of tiny homes, find answers to practical problems and enter the miniature world of sustainable living. 

See – all together – these humble tiny abodes in their many forms: tiny houses on wheels, ship containers, granny flats and cabins.

Inspect each tiny home. Compare the varied designs. Speak to the builders. Step through each house. Amaze at their space savers. Be surprised at their low costs. Get advice on regulations.  Check their eco living aspects. Ask about bespoken designs. 

See your excess land – a city backyard, vacant block, holiday retreat, or farmlet – for what it is, opportunity – a chance to provide independence for a loved one, a chance to get a holiday retreat, a chance to downscale, a chance to slash bills, a chance to gain Airbnb rental income.

Street of Tiny Houses

Like walking through a miniature village, you’ll be blown away by the big ideas in these tiny houses.

Free ‘Tiny’ Seminars

Ask your questions of experts discussing local laws, costs and practicalities of ‘going tiny’.

Lots of ATHA members speaking!

Off The Grid and Living Tiny

To most of us, living without money sounds like an impossible dream, but Jo Nemeth hasn’t spent a cent in years. With a desire to live more simply, sustainably, and in line with her values, Jo stepped off the treadmill of rent, bills, and a stressful job to change key aspects of her life.

Fred Schultz designed and built his off-grid tiny house on wheels for his family before tiny houses on wheels were a thing. But for Fred, off-grid wasn’t enough. The house had to be run on reusable sources of fuel as well. So he designed and built a solar passive tiny house.

Alicia and her partner have been living tiny in their Tiny House for nearly 4 years. Now they have welcomed a tiny addition to the family home with the arrival of their first child.

Join Jo, Fred and Alicia to hear their journey to a Tiny House life and beyond, living a whole lot more with a whole lot less.
