The National Rock Garden – Progress and Plans – What Stories to Tell With What Rocks?

Presented by Marita Bradshaw (National Rock Garden Steering Committee)


The National Rock Garden is gathering a collection of at least a hundred large iconic rocks from across the continent and Antarctica. The aim is to celebrate the geological heritage of Australia and to demonstrate how rocks have contributed to the nation’s landscapes, heritage and prosperity. The NRG is located in Canberra, by Lake Burley Griffin, where a dozen large rocks are currently on display. Plans are well advance to move these rocks, and others in storage, to a nearby new site within the National Arboretum Canberra. Igneous and metamorphic rocks are the bulk of the current collection, leaving the opportunity for new specimens to better represent sedimentary rocks, and the stories they can tell about Australia and its geology. We are reaching out to the PESA community for help in this endeavour. What rocks do you think should be in the National Rock Garden?
