Darwin Waterfront Master Plan
“Preserve and integrate the unique natural beauty of the site into a viable sustainable multi faceted tourism focus for the area.”
The project, serving as the central marketing hub for the entire future development, includes the naturally beautiful Beach Park with ‘postcardperfect’ views, Visitor Centre housing retail and recreation facilities with a nearly half-hectare swimming pool overlooking the ocean, the ‘Xiamen Volcanic Rocks Theme Park’ offering a stunning encounter with the sites volcanic geographical history, a Shipping Container Hotel accommodation and future Marina.
The site’s long term sustainability is threatened by storm surge events, climate-change-related sea level rise and strong coastal winds. Place Design Group developed a creative site specific sustainable design that protects the ecological sand dunes, prevents sand depositions and conserves existing vegetation – transforming the site into a great place for both people and nature.”
