Explore this unique landscape
The Summit focuses on a 900,000-hectare region across the Albany Sandplains and North Stirlings Basin that is unlike anywhere else in Western Australia.
This landscape supports many important plants & animals within a biodiversity hotspot. What sets this landscape apart is its drainage, that don’t drain into rivers, but pool across the landscape instead.
It holds deep social and cultural connections, home to the Menang Noongar peoples who have deep connections to the landscape including its landforms, ecology and water systems. The land has also long been worked by generations of farmers who have lived through its changes, and know its hardships, like periods of waterlogging backed by years of drought.
There is a great potential for this landscape to not only thrive as it is, but expand into a landscape that is healthy, productive and sustainable. It just needs a little help, from us.
The areas uniqueness sets it apart, but also brings about unique challenges, ones that create wicked problems and need a collective to find unique solutions and open new pathways for the regions future.
