This work explores the work of landscape architects in Australia since the 1960s. It describes how landscape architects are, as contemporary Australians, listening more closely to the language of the landcape and how they are designing new landscapes in response. These designed landscapes manifest "new conversations" between the land and its people, from the coast to the outback, the city and the suburbs. These works have their own story and meaning; they tell us something of Australia and how contemporary Australians live.
