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.

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.

Thank you for selecting me to be a part of the Early Career Grant, it was a truly an experience like no other and I would love to attend future ALC’s!

Claire Sun, Landscape Architect

I want to add my voice to the chorus of gratitude for all your superb achievement in creating a truly mind-blowing event. I, like so many I spoke to, found it quite a spiritually moving experience – not sure I’ve ever actually cried so much at a conference before. I feel incredibly blessed to have been able to experience the breadth of approaches in the industry, yet all linked by a common thread of using our craft to heal. So thank you to you, for shaping the conversation so eloquently.

La Muxlow

Thank you so much for orchestrating an incredible weekend of inspirational speakers.
