This article analyses the greenwashed beach-house development on Australia’s coasts. Through the example of the beachsides in New South Wales, it demonstrates that the cultural capitals of ‘heritage’ and ‘greenness’ are valued as distinction to the suburban norm. It concludes that, while this development appeals to the notion of an enlightened consumer, this new model of development ultimately offers little to challenge issues of environmental degradation associated with other versions of (sub)urban sprawl
