The new geological Earth Sciences Garden at Monash University forms an innovative outdoor learning environment for students, showcasing the geology and geomorphology of Victoria. The garden comprises a stunning arrangement of nearly 500 rock specimens which are laid out to form outcrops in a geological map and is the only garden of this type in Australia.
The garden, which measures 120m x 30m, was developed by a team of Monash University’s earth scientists and engineered by WGE. The centrepiece of the garden is a 10-tonne Gneiss rock. WGE completed the civil, services design, and the significant structural foundations required to support the rock formations.
