Wodonga Sustainable Living Fair

The Wodonga Sustainable Living Fair responds directly and positively to our changing world. It focuses on sustainable living and related practices that preserve resources and reduce the negative impact on our environment.

Sponsored by a partnership of La Trobe and local businesses and community organisations, the Fair is held annually at La Trobe University's Albury-Wodonga campus, coinciding with Open Day.

Heading towards its sixth year, the Fair continues to grow in size and reputation. Dozens of organisations display a variety of sustainable products and services. It's free to be an exhibitor.
