Building beauty in Australian towns and cities, locally.

About us

Street Level Australia is an association of local groups working to make Australian places more beautiful and conducive to human flourishing by advancing good urbanism, traditional architecture and quality building.

Street Level is a fundamentally local organisation. We are currently active in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Northern NSW and Perth and working to seed the creation of local Street Level groups around Australia. See where we are active and register your interest in starting a Street Level group.

Increase the proportion of new buildings and developments that are beautiful and accord with the preferences of local communities

Implement the traditional town planning approach in major Australian cities, municipalities and towns, creating at least three places in Australia with traditional masterplans by 2025

Sydney Is Beautiful

The Sydney Is Beautiful architecture and urbanism competition was established to celebrate beautiful architecture and promote the design and development of buildings that will be cherished by generations to come.

Chapter meet-up

We are building a revolution.

We are building a revolution to increase the number of beautiful, quality and enduring local neighbourhoods, streets and buildings in Australia through local chapters comprised of people who deeply love, and are fighting to improve, their local area.

Unlike most revolutions, we intend to restore, not purge, the wisdom of the past.
