Horticultural Salute


The Horticultural Salute art piece pays tribute to Carnarvon's origins as a thriving settlement rooted in fertile soils along the Gascoyne River. Lieutenant George Grey, inspired by the rich earth, saw parallels with the Nile's fertility, and Carnarvon was born.

The artwork utilises concentric circles, symbolising both the river and the rows of crops. The Shire chooses from time to time to let the grass between the circles grow tall to represent crops or keep it trimmed.

A solitary figure on the limestone wall symbolises the decades of hard work that made Carnarvon a vital contributor to the State's food markets. Join this figure, take a seat, and capture a moment to celebrate Carnarvon's agricultural heritage.
