A private/public partnership, the Victorian Desalination Project represents the largest public sector investment in water infrastructure in Australia?s history. Victoria's new desalination project is covered with a living tapestry of indigenous plants that reflect the changing seasons and environment. The 263 hectare site will become a re-vegetated native parkland, and the vegetation on the living roof reflects this commitment.

An important part of the project's landscape architecture, 98,000 native plants cover the roof spanning over 26,000 m2. The roof slopes vary considerably, from 1 - 22%. Designer and installer Fytogreen maintained several test beds at various slopes during the research phase to test appropriate plants for wind and vegetatiion type.
