Winton's township is a winner in the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects award announced last week.
The town's main street, Elderslie St won the Landscape Architecture Award for its 2019 redesign.
AILA Queensland Jury Chair Lauren Newton said Elderslie St was an excellent example of rural streetscape rejuvenation.
"(Architects) RPS has successfully increased local amenity, pedestrian activation, event capacity and did so with a design language that is strongly place based," Ms Newton said.
"The project is reflective of the regional ecology, culture, values and history, resulting in a landscape that has a defined personality. "
Ms Newton said each design feature from seating to shade and play contributed to building the town's character and communicating its story and each had been executed with a refined palette that allows room to breathe.
"The result is a landscape that can expand to host a festival of multiple thousands of people, and also contract to invite casual daily interactions between neighbours," she said.
Winton Shire Council said RPS had created a fantastic design that reinvigorates Elderslie Street.
"The major themes of sheep, opal and dinosaur run throughout giving the heart of town a strong identity with more gardens, trees and shade," they said.
The award follows another architectural win for the rebuilt Winton Waltzing Matilda Centre in the 2019 Australian Interior Design Awards.
