With a strategic focus on leading the way in the building industry, Plantation Homes, part of the Henley Properties Group, is setting the benchmark in sustainable and environmental initiatives.

Plantation Homes is proud to be part of the group that was the first builder to introduce 5 star energy rated homes five years before it became mandatory by the government.

Our vision is to continue to push the boundaries and look forward to providing Australian families with the opportunity to access sustainable and affordable homes into the future. We encourage our clients to explore increasing their energy rating, to help protect the environment whilst saving money on energy bills.
