Info

Comprised of multiple elements across a 230-metre expanse of Crown Street Mall Wollongong, Hewson's artwork has been designed to physically and conceptually bring local natural elements into the urban cityscape. The work includes a 17-metre tall 'palm pole', palm seats and a playground with three substantial rock formations quarried to order from Bundanoon Sandstone.
