National Arboretum Canberra

Developing the site

Work commenced in 2005 and major civil works commenced in 2010. The terraced Central Valley near the Village Centre, a reconfiguration of 40,000 cubic metres of earth over seven hectares, was Australia's largest sculpted earthwork since the Sydney Olympics.

The Village Centre, Margaret Whitlam Pavilion, Pod Playground and Icon Water Discovery Garden, have all been completed. Substantial progress has been achieved in road, track, signage and car park improvements and in lighting, watering harvesting and recycling, irrigation and water storage.
