The eco-friendly accommodation is set among eco friendly grounds. AN ECO-friendly property, which boasts "no carbon footprint", is generating attention in the Granite Belt region. This is particularly impressive when the region is well known for being environmentally conscious.
Graham King is the owner of Sippers at Ballandean.
The property is an accommodation concept that has just won national recognition for an innovative approach to energy.Everything, from the building itself - it was a former kindergarten at Boonah on the eastern side of the range - to the design, has a focus on being ecologically friendly.
And the attention to detail has paid off.Mr King has successfully combined the once-alien concepts of luxury and environmental awareness, to earn a 4.5 star AAA tourism rating, with a much sought-after green star for being eco-friendly.
