2010 AILA National Landscape Architecture Award: Land Management

Nungatta Station Land Management Program by Material Landscape Architecture

Jury Comment

This wide-reaching land management program for a 5,000-hectare cattle station in south-east New South Wales gained the jury’s admiration for its demonstration of the scientific underpinning of landscape architectural practice. Working to optimize rural land management, it also heralds a commitment

to a new way of land management for rural land-holders that relies on a close understanding of the natural systems inherent in the property, and also bravely faces the reality of needing to find other means of value generation beyond cattle grazing.

The jury was impressed with the management plan’s comprehensive approach, illustrated through the mapping and analysis of many different environmental factors and the application of the ideas supporting broad environment values through weed control, planting of some six hundred hectares of eucalyptus plantation and commitment to the protection of 118 hectares of endangered ecological communities.
