Bingara Gorge

  • Landscape Architecture
  • Sydney

The 120 hectares of natural bushland and gorges associated with Stringybark Creek that meanders through the site and dedicated to an environmental trust anchors the community to its environment.

A key driver of project adopted in the overall landscape vision was to create a residential community that encapsulates the relaxed lifestyle of the region. The development embraces both the vegetated backdrop provided by the Razorback ranges and along the distinctive colourful landscape of the southern highlands.

Client: Lend Lease Communities

Key Facts:
  • 450 HA

The Team:

The 18-hole golf course which wraps around the gorges was developed with an awareness of sustainability through both  the re-use of grey and stormwater, and the extensive  of native grasses sweeping and canopy trees alongside the fairways.

Working from the initial visioning and master plan stages through to documentation and delivery, we explored ways to bring the sense of place and character to each residential precinct, with each precinct having a its own identity within the over-arching vision for Bingara.

Providing landscape outcomes for a range of landscape settings, ranging from intimate treatments of streetscapes, parks and village entry statements through to broad scale landscape treatments of the golf course, set within the backdrop of the Southern Highlands landscape, has created a residential community that encapsulates the relaxed lifestyle of the region, as well as its distinctive colourful landscape ,while remaining responsive to market demand and achieving sustainable outcomes.
