Memory Mountain reflects the faith, culture and creativity of the local Aboriginal people.
The Cross Today
Fast forward to 2021 and construction is finally completed. Standing 20 metres tall at the summit of Memory Mountain, the Cross is constructed of Corten steel, so it blends into the natural environment.
Every aspect of planning and construction was carried out in consultation with the local Indigenous people, and with environmental protection at the forefront of all decision-making. The access pathway to the summit of the mountain is made of steel grates attached to poles core drilled into the mountainside. It has been designed to be sensitive to the aesthetics of the mountain, to minimise erosion, and to protect native flora.
