Australia Felix Permaculture

We're based in Bendigo, Central Victoria, Australia. Since 1993 we have been involved with the design & development of over 1100 properties including apartment balconies to 110 000 acre ranches using permaculture design. Through imagery this web site increases the profile of permaculture-based development & the people & enterprises that make it all happen.

Our mission has always been to raise the profile of permaculture design to the point where it becomes an unconscious practice as opposed to a marginal methodology.

In business we deliver cost effective best practice permaculture-based sustainable property design, education, and consulting services to people, businesses & communities around the world.

Over the last 15 years we have amassed a significant array of photographic data & computer generated plans documenting our work, and are pleased to make this work in progress available to the internet community, permaculture dilettante & professional alike. We intend on continuing to add to this "diorama" through our travels & work.
