Point Cook, Victoria



The Kingsford development is named after Charles Kingsford Smith and the elements used within the development reference this aeronautical theme. A steel entry sign constructed of zinc cladding represent the sheeting on 1920’s and 1930’s aircraft. Additional ‘blade’ walls further highlight the entry to the development, softened by extensive planting of Ficinia nodosa (Knobby Club Rush), Prunus lusitanica (Portuguese Laurel) and Callistemon viminallis ‘Captain Cook’ (Red Flowering Bottlebrush). The Kingsford Waterway consists of a series of pools connected by meandering rock lined channels and includes shared pedestrian bicycle paths, extensive indigenous planting, seating areas and a suspended arched boardwalk crossing, which connects pedestrians to adjacent parkland. The arch is over 5.0 meters tall and spans over 25 meters. It is constructed of galvanised steel beams with a spotted gum timber boardwalks and handrail. A separate road bridge crosses the waterway and features decorative lighting, stone cladding and zinc clad blades and pillars.
