Cleland Wildlife Park Master Plan

with URPS and WAX Design

For this holistic Master Plan for the much-loved Cleland Wildlife Park, Phillips/Pilkington Architects worked in a consultant team led by URPS, comprising landscape architects, an interpretive design specialist, an ecologist, and a zoo and tourism specialist, collaborating with Cleland staff and representatives from the Department of Natural Resources.

The Master Plan resulted in proposals for the reorganisation and renovation of Cleland's physical assets and visitor experience, whilst also addressing issues of brand identity, competitors and benchmarking, potential new commercial opportunities, financial management, wayfinding and interpretive signage, animal management and conservation.

Phillips/Pilkington Architects provided sketch design proposals to streamline Cleland's visitor entrace experience, as well as designs for the wombat enclosure, the koala experience, and the reptile house, reflecting best-practice principles in immersive enclosure design.
