Animal Crossings

Designing for wildlife at Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne

How can we design, with wildlife as our client?

Join an adventure through the bushland and entry roads of Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne, to experience the fascinating world of tunnels for wildlife.

Surrounding the spectacular Taylor Cullity Lethlean designed Australian Garden, a remnant bushland is home to some of Victoria’s most precious plants and animals. Getting humans to access the much-loved destination, without harming these animals, is no mean feat. Hear from conservation experts Tricia Stewart and Eilish Roberts as they take us through the emerging field of Road Ecology, and the creative thinking that is designing roads for wildlife.

Don your walking shoes to explore design from the perspective of a different kind of local – and learn how human access can live in harmony with other creatures.

Presented by Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria for Melbourne Design Week 2024.
