NSW Elara Riparian Parklands Tour -SOLD OUT


This event is now SOLD OUT. Please contact [email protected], to be placed on the waitlist, should places become available .

The 24 hectare Elara Riparian Parklands located within Stockland’s new Elara Development at Marsden Park – a planned community accommodating over 25,000 residents – represents one of the largest reconstructed riparian environments in North West Sydney’s history. 

The delivery of this major human and habitat asset is the result of years of intensive, creative, open collaboration between PDS, Stockland and all the project’s key collaborative partners. 

The result is a vast new landscape comprising of over 17 hectares of riparian vegetation and stream stabilisation works with in excess of 5 hectares of public amenity parklands. 

The tour will be led by Garth Paterson of Paterson Design Studio and Darren Mason of Andreasens Green.

The tour will begin at 10am at the Parklands and conclude at 12pm. A light lunch will be provided after the tour. We look forward to seeing you there!


A big thank you to Principal Partner Andreasens Green for their support of this event.
