U-Turn Round – Lismore Rainforest Botanic Gardens
Australian designers and interpretive installers Armsign were approached by the gardens to help tell the story of different bush tucker plants that had been planted in the garden. As they were looking to install interpretation outdoors, they required a product that was able to run without the need for mains power and that would be able to withstand the changing weather conditions; our U-Turn Round fit this brief perfectly (having supplied U-Turns to them for projects with Wudinna Council and the City of Prospect previously). The U-Turn was installed surrounding the bush tucker plants and features audio information about each of the useful aboriginal plants and their characteristics. As standard with Armsign’s projects, our U-Turn had a colourful makeover using custom paint and full colour Polycure, it was also installed onto a natural timber post to match the earthy colours and tones.
Since the U-Turn’s installation in the gardens, it has been a big talking point for visitors and has allowed them to learn more about the bush tucker rain-forest plants that the gardens care for.
