Dingo Precinct

Healesville Sanctuary

Famous or infamous?  Villain or victim? Controversy has surrounded the Dingo in Australia but new research suggests that this iconic predator could be an ecological saviour and help to restore the natural order of the Australian bush.

The precinct was to represent an authentic alpine environment utlising materials such as rough sawn timber and rusted steel. The focal point was a purpose built alpine hut providing intimate views of the dingos.

Signage used the same rustic materials but in a contemporary linear format to evoke the movement of the dingo through the landscape.

Arterial was responsible for the concept design, design development, graphic design, fabrication and installation of this immersive interpretative exhibit.
