Discover Australia’s environmental challenges walking the landscape Australia’s landscape is unique, for some it is beautiful, others have thought it a place of the weird or the monstrous. For both indigenous and non-indigenous Australia the land has had a huge influence on identity and culture. Paradise Lost? examines how cultural, climactic and economic forces have shaped the Australian landscape and how we will deal with the challenges facing the environment today, considering many of the debates surrounding sustainability, heritage and climate. As part of this field-study based subject, students will be guided through fascinating sites including the Royal Botanic Gardens, the Murray River and Wilson’s Promontory, allowing students to experience what the landscape means to Australia’s past and its future.
