This thesis regards the planning and design of a new continental-scale green infrastructure for Australia, the National Green Network. This research project aims to spatially illustrate key international and national environmental policy targets and to augment Australia's currently limited protected area network through a design that addresses multiple contemporary and future environmental challenges. Theoretically, such an infrastructure could help to sustain the Australian continent, its landscapes, biota and peoples through a robust and interconnected network of vegetated corridors spanning across the Australian continent. These are illustrated through a substantial creative component involving mapping and design work at multiple scales.
