    It was a sensitive site due to its bordering Barongarook Creek which, along with its associated vegetation, began at Lake Colac and meandered its way through the township with sufficient charm. Its wandering nature had been singled out – in the Colac Otway Shire Development Study, 2013 – as an opportunity to develop a public trail which would connect the residential areas of Colac with Murray Street and the lake beyond.

    A sculptural timber screen with associated planting formed a beautiful entry sequence from the proposed trail, blending with a colour feature wall to transition from the natural environment of the creek to the built form
