After winning a swag of awards for its stunning architecture, the first two completed stages of the $300 million Viridian Noosa development, including several architecturally-designed homes, have been recognised for excellence in landscape management.
Set on Noosa Hill on a former banana plantation that later became a weed-infested goat paddock, the project has taken out the Queensland Excellence Award for Land Management at the Australian Institute of Landscape Architecture (Qld) awards.
