The Project

Buckland Hill is a complex site where natural, Aboriginal and historic heritage values intersect, creating a culturally significant landscape. Listings include the State Register of Heritage Places, the National Trust, Aboriginal Heritage, and Engineering Heritage. In addition, Buckland Hill has environmental protection as an ‘A’ Class Reserve and Threatened Ecological Community. 

Our Role

We were engaged to develop a new Cultural Landscape Management Plan (CLMP) for the site which included identifying the diverse and multifaceted values before developing a range of management policies. The complexities of this project involved reference to twelve statutory frameworks and standards. Following extensive community and stakeholder consultation we achieved what is considered to be an equitable balance between Aboriginal, environmental and historical heritage significance. We provided specific policies around tourism, trails and future use to suit the client’s vision to manage Buckland Hill as a sustainable heritage tourism and recreational destination.


The military, environmental and Aboriginal aspects of the place’s history hold equal value to the community and statutory stakeholders. We managed to balance these and deliver a practical CLMP that was unanimously supported and adopted by the Town of Mosman Park.

The report is publicly available through the National Library of Australia at https://nla.gov.au/nla.obj-2804166110/view
