Project Title: KANGAROO ISLAND

Flinders Chase National Park is sited at the western end of Kangaroo Island.  Dense forest and woodland gives way to sand dunes, rugged cliffs and beaches to provide diverse habitat for a stunning array of native animals and plants.

Between 1999 and 2003 Taylor Cullity Lethlean worked with National Parks and Wildlife SA to design visitor facilities throughout the park.  Many sites were minor interventions to accommodate cars and direct walkers to places of interest while protecting sensitive environments.  In other cases major infrastructure changes were required to reach a balance between access and impact.

All work was undertaken in close consultation and collaboration with NPWSA staff.

“This project demonstrates a well structured set of design principles to deal with complex site and management issues from which sensitive solutions are derived."

Jury citation. AILA SA Awards 2000 Design - Parks and Recreation.
