The water storage characteristics of the Queensland Bottle Tree fit perfectly within this design concept. The bulbous form and random vertical alignment of the powder coated green tubes is inspired by the organic nature and growth of the species. The Queensland Bottle Tree has been used as bush tucker by indigenous communities around Queensland … mainly eaten for its seed pods.

The powder-coated green aluminium tubes portray a sense of growth and rejuvenation, whilst reminding the township that water is a precious resource and the important lessons we can learn from our native flora.
