Renowned for presenting cutting edge ideas about landscape design, the biennial Australian Landscape Conference transcends the everyday and focuses on the ideas and concepts behind the scenes that create outstanding landscapes.
In 2023, we focus on enhancing experiences and learning opportunities for the landscape design community and delve into the creativity of the planting specialist and landscape designers.
Many of the ideas presented at the ALC influence future designs and literature which contribute to shaping our landscapes, both private and public, over the coming years.
