Shipwreck Coast Masterplan Stage One

Victoria, Australia

Project 2018 – Current

Stage One of the Shipwreck Coast Masterplan encompasses three significant projects to revitalise a 28 kilometre stretch of Victoria’s world-famous Great Ocean Road.

The design approach recognises the differing characteristics and demands of each site and adopts a range of conceptual techniques – either creating a bold counterpoint, treading lightly upon the landscape or subsumed within the natural environment.

The proposal for the Saddle lookout at the 12 Apostles, is distinctive and dramatic, perched on top of the cliffs, to fully experience the scale and drama of the magnificent landscape.

Minimising its visual and physical impact upon both the landscape and the town, the proposed Port Campbell Creek pedestrian bridge will sit lightly above water and sand.

The proposal for the Loch Ard Blowhole lookout is discreetly nestled among the coastal vegetation on the very edge of the blowhole, hidden from the approaching paths, to provide a surprising and thrilling experience.

In association with Arup and McGregor Coxall.
