Abstract

This network of living fences and windbreaks was initiated in the 1850 s when the area was settled as an experiment in English colonization. The colonists juxtaposed images of an antipodean utopia with the reality of a droughty and windy plains. The paper focuses on the development and distribution of the hedges and shelterbetts as features of the built landscape
