Description

Join the University Collections team for our end of year Cultural Celebration on the North Terrace Campus

6.00 pm until dusk Monday 19 November 2018

On the Lawn by Gate 13 off Kintore Avenue North Terrace Campus, The University of Adelaide

Everyone is welcome

This year we celebrate Adelaide landscape designer Elsie Cornish (1870 – 1946) who was employed between 1929 and 1946 to establish and maintain gardens on the lower campus to complement the architectural designs and building layout crated by Walter H Bagot, the University Architect.

Of particular note was the colourful ‘Embankment Garden’ Cornish established using many succulents she propagated herself. This garden ran horizontally for 300 metres along the escarpment from Kintore Avenue to the rear of Elder Hall.

Clare Murphy, University Collections volunteer and tour guide, who has researched the development of this garden will present an overview of the garden before taking a tour to point out key elements of this truly inspirational gardening initiative.

Clare is an MSc (Zoology) graduate and former employee of the University of Adelaide and member of the University Collections Volunteer Group. In researching and documenting University Collections History and Heritage tours on offer to the general public, she noticed there were none about the gardens and open spaces of the North Terrace campus. She has now developed such a tour, which will be offered for interested individuals and groups from March 2019.

As is customary, The Desperados will provide the perfect musical atmosphere.
