The Hermannsburg Heritage Precinct in Ntaria Community, central Australia is an iconic site, capturing both the Aboriginal heritage of the area and the colonial heritage of the early missionary era.

As part of a broader plan to preserve and develop the site, Arid Edge and Tangentyere Design jointly developed plans for the development of outdoor areas, shaded pathways, lawns, irrigation and shaded seating, as well as the re-instatement of heritage garden
beds, market gardens, and date palm plantations.

Preserving the heritage values of the site as well as providing an inviting and engaging experience for visitors were the focus of the design. A wide range of traditional and innovative, arid appropriate design approaches were implemented to both preserve and enhance this important historical site.
