Isle of Newport Waterway

  • client: Stockland, QLD

  • collaboration: CUSP

A naturalized waterway was central to the stormwater drainage and treatment strategy for the Isle of Newport development in Redcliffe.

The waterway comprised billabongs and a linear wetland waterway that meanders across the very flat site, creating a corridor between existing residential properties and the new development. It is now a significant landscape feature within the urban design, embraced by the council and residents.
