Hello from Sydney


I am a free-range Sydney Landscape Architect/Artist working closely with schools and garden lovers to improve ecological health and wellbeing of the spaces between buildings. At the moment I am working on a site in the foothils of the Illawarra Escarpment, Bulli, north of Wollongong, NSW and would like to talk with bird-watchers in the area. I look forward to learning more here at BiB.  


Hi Annabel I am in Sydney and like to get around checking out the birdlife (and taking a few snaps) Sounds like a great job. Just a little ways north of Bulli where you are working is a nice group of areas for birding around Otford, Helensburgh, Heathcote, Waterfall, the Royal National Park and Lake Woronora. Check em out if you get a chance.

Hi Annabel. I'm in SA, not in Sydney, but I am interested in the work of landscape architects & the part they can play in restoration of damaged & lost ecologies. I'm particularly interested in the part that indigenous vegetation might play in your work.

Hi Annabel, wish I could be a bit more helpful but I live out in westernsydney! I love your job! What a fascinating and wonderful way to make a living!
I am trying in my own way to create a beautiful space around our house, I have an adult daughter who has an acquired brain injury and I am building her a sensory garden from native plants to bring the local birdlife in close for her to experience!
I also volunteer for an organisation that rescues and caresnfor native animals and birds.

Hey Wollemi. Nice to hear from you again. From time to time I've wondered how your daughter is enjoying the garden.
