Explore Geelong’s green rooftops

Presented by City of Greater Geelong

Booked out

The City of Greater Geelong, Geelong Manufacturing Council, Victorian Government and Deakin University worked together to rejuvenate Geelong’s landscape through a design competition. Faced with challenges like climate change, changing economic conditions and urban growth, the competition invited commercial building owners and occupants to explore innovative ways of incorporating rooftop gardens by working with students. This tour includes stops at four of the built outcomes: GMHBA, T&G Building (Deakin University student residences), Barwon Water and The Black Shed Project. A display of the rooftop garden designs and planting schemes generated by Deakin University Masters of Landscape Architecture students feature as part of the tour along with talks on the importance of green rooftops.
