Rockpool Pavilion - Designers
The shelter in the Australian Garden is known as the Rockpool Pavilion. The designers of this Pavilion were Gregory Burgess Pty Ltd Architects.
The water flow at maximum flow is 10,000 litres per minute or about 2,000 gallons per minute. It is on a 20 minute cycle to represent the ephemeral nature of water in Australia. The water within the Rockpool Waterway is natural ground water from the waterhole at the bottom of the Rockpool Waterway. This water is topped up by rainwater collected from the roof of the Visitor Centre.
