Work details

The work removed the paving with a formed pedestrian access with shaded trees and arbour structures. This  not only improves the amenity of the area but also engages staff and students with built study environments. The landscape focus is on the regional vegetation and contributes to course outcomes by promoting and demonstrating a living example of sustainable vegetation.  It re-establishes the visual spine of the campus with a clear view to the heritage precinct of the canary palms.

The landscape provides a wide and clear equitable pedestrian thoroughfare through the site connecting the foundation precinct to the campus heart and entry from the Inner Ring Road.  It will be framed by layered canopies in the form of trees, terraces and arbour study structures.
