This organic balustrade was designed and built by artist Steve Weis. The top of the fence reflects the lines of the tree canopy in Eumundi. The body of the fence acknowledges the density of the forest, the understory of vines and the litter of limbs that make the various habitats of the ecosystem.

With respect to the pioneers, I have referred to the experience of timber-getting in this primal environment and the challenges inherent in the dense scrub. The water monitor and wisteria pods symbolise the genetic strength, potential and heritage of the country.
