Bendigo Botanic Gardens Master Plan by City of Bendigo

Client: City of Bendigo

Jury comment

This body of work is an extremely comprehensive assessment of all the layers that contribute to a public park. The resultant master plan  responsively and responsibly interprets these layers and formulates them into a vision “that will celebrate the past, appreciate the present and embrace the future”.

The depth of understanding and commitment to gardens is clearly shown in the end result: a document that will result in a lasting legacy for the community, the region and in fact, botanical gardens and arboreta nation-wide.
