A path along the foreshore and up to the rotunda contains bricks engraved with dedications and messages from local people. This was definitely my favourite. 2015-04-13 15.55.58 Lake Colac

The artwork is in the shape the footpad of the Tachyglossus, a now-extinct relative of the echidna. It includes totems of the local Gulidjan/Kolacgnat tribe as well as a boomerang, a gum tree leaf and an outline of Red Rock, a dormant volcano visible on the other side of the lake. It is surrounded by native grasses and plants, and a stone wall that represents British settlement.
