Born in Melbourne Victoria, Landale attended high school at Geelong Grammar. As a student he played for the Geelong Supercats in the VJBL Under-18s and Big V State Youth Championship in 2013.

In the same year he also represented the Australian Under-19 national team at a four nations tournament in China. Landale’s whirlwind year was capped off by a scholarship offer from Californian college Saint Mary’s.

Landale graduated from Geelong Grammar in 2013 and moved to the USA to begin his NCAA career in 2014.

For the 2016/17 season, his third year at Saint Mary’s, Landale’s handwork and dedication in his freshman and sophomore years paid off and he was awarded the role of a starter. With his new responsibilities he averaged 16.9 points and 9.5 rebounds. As a reward for his efforts Landale was crowned a member of the West Coast Conference (WCC) First Team.

Landale would save his best for the following year. In 2017/18, his final season as a Saint Mary’s Gael, the young Australia centre would lead his team from the front. He averaged an incredible 21.1 points and 10.1 rebounds. He was once again selected for the WCC First Team and was voted a consensus member of the NCAA All-American Second Team, as well as receiving the WCC Player of the Year award

After going undrafted in the 2018 NBA Draft, Landale signed with the Atlanta Hawks for the Summer League.

After his stint in the Summer League, Landale headed to Europe, signing with Serbian team KK Partizan. He made an immediate impact, averaging 12 points and 5.6 rebounds during the 2018/19 Liga ABA season. As a result he was elected for the All-Adriatic League Team.

Landale also helped KK Partizan take home the Serbian Cup, putting up 16 points and 5 rebounds over three games.

In February 2019 Landale made his debut for the Australian Boomers, appearing in the final FIBA World Cup qualification window against Kazahkstan where he registered ten points and five rebounds.

In 2019, the young Australian made an impressive return to the NBA Summer League with the Milwaukee Bucks. Over four games Landale poured in 18.3 points and 7 rebounds.

Currently Landale is signed with Lithuanian team BC Žalgris Kaunas.

In the 2019 professional off-season, Landale realised his dream of pulling on the green and gold at a major international tournament as he was named as a member of the Boomers' FIBA World Cup team.
