Abstract

The 'sense of place' that a city and its inhabitants come to identify themselves by can have profound impacts on the way that urban landscapes develop. In the case of Perth, its icons are the Swan River, The sandy beaches of the Indian Ocean coastline, and Kings Park. While the first two have defined the way that the city is laid out and has grown, the latter has fostered the development of an Australian garden and landscape approach to urban design, and a strong native species conservation ethic.
