What is Elmwood?

Named by the Master Builders Association of Victoria as the “best integrated housing development in Australia”, Elmwood is a multi-award winning, residential development in Wodonga created by Triquest Corporation Pty Ltd. Triquest is owned by Wodonga residents, Henry Dinning and Brendon Collins.

Armed with a vision to make Australian homes greener, safer and more energy efficient, Henry and Brendon set out in 2002 to build the landmark development.

Their philosophy is simple: to build elegant, sustainable homes and create meaningful lifestyles that challenge the architectural and urban living status quo.


A boutique development of 130 single and two storey town-houses boasting seven to nine star energy ratings, Elmwood has been recognised and honoured throughout the industry for its clever use of design, efficiency, innovation and best practice.

Brendon was honoured with an Order of Australia medal in the 2018 Queen’s Birthday Honours list for his services to the building and construction industry. And Elmwood is now poised to achieve a 10 star energy rating in 2019.

It’s more than that though. Elmwood is so much more than its impressive awards and achievements.

The essence of Elmwood living is about creating a life rich in all that makes us happy, healthy and balanced.

It’s about creating a community that changes the very fabric of urban living in regional Australia.

This unique precinct has been lovingly and carefully designed and built by local resident and master builder, Brendon Collins (OAM), to create a good old fashioned neighbourhood and micro community that prides itself on high quality, low-maintenance sustainable living.

Located in the heart of Wodonga (Victoria), Elmwood boasts an onsite alfresco cafe, accredited medical clinic, pharmacy, community vegetable garden and tranquil public spaces for everyone to enjoy, just a stroll from your front door.

It is surrounded by established parkland, just minutes from schools, shopping and recreational hubs, and close to public transport.

Elmwood is about community and connection. Belonging and beauty. Sustainability and simplicity. Access and affordability. Ease and elegance.

It’s the perfect place to retire, ‘downsize’, invest for the future or simply find that special place to live.
