Dynamic charcoal concrete walls slice through the slope. Mass plantings of Casuarina Cousin IT provide a dark green sculptural setting.
Mature grass trees that were imported to the site have flourished. The inclusion of the Birpai word for Port Macquarie "Guruk" provides some acknowledgement of the traditional owners on this site of overt European history. The walls have been embellished with artwork representing the surrounding unique flora and fauna. The sandblasting technique has given the graphics an ever-changing contrast that is revealed in different light settings.
