Welcome to AILA’s QLD Chapter

Chapter provides a platform for members to be supported, engage, learn, mentor, network and advocate for the profession of landscape architecture in our State. An immersive program of events and initiatives is available, both in-person and online, throughout the year. 

Your local chapter also champions ongoing opportunities for members to profile the profession and role Landscape Architects play in shaping stronger greener communities. 

The practice of landscape architecture is changing with multiple influencing factors including - climate change, pandemics, biodiversity loss, growing cities, over development, social cohesion, gender equity and first nations equality. AILA is working with our members to provide new and practical tools to support the changing profession.

Join us in connecting with fellow landscape architects to lead this dynamic and respected profession to address the changing role and new opportunities for your professional and personal journey as a landscape architect.
