the heart of the matter

The Place

Arthur and Yvonne Boyd's gift of Bundanon has given Australia a unique cultural and environmental asset. It was born out of Boyd's often stated belief that 'you can't own a landscape' and the wish that others might also draw inspiration from this remarkable place.


Bundanon's physical spaces and the lifeforms which inhabit them are explored here, with links to our commitment to environmental management and the Living Landscape, a land rejuvenation and education project.
