Location Phoenix Mine Road.

Statement of Significance Phoenix Mine Road offers a sequence of changing views as it traverses up slope from Lucknow. The road meanders to accommodate the level change and this results in a range of views being available.

The road rises from the floor of Frederick’s Valley near Lucknow and elevated views back along the valley are available. Towards the top of the rise the road meanders through patches of remnant vegetation and then a precinct of hobby farms and acreages which are characterised by a landscape of windbreaks, hedges and fencing which enclose the views. As the road reaches the top of the plateau the experience changes as the landscape flattens out and distant views to Mount Canobolas become available.

The road passes through a number of landscape types including windbreaks and hedges which enclose the views

This particular view lies adjacent to the airport and is typical of the landscape in this region of the city. The landscape on the elevated plateau is characterised by farmlands with boundary plantings and windbreaks.
