Rock Hopping is an artwork that celebrates the landscape and the community of Cabarita Beach and Bogangar. The artwork was inspired by the the local landscape and memory of summer holidays; rock hopping and discovering the treasures of the coast and the sea among the rock pools and crevices of this beautiful landscape.
Each rock is engraved with drawings, text and patterns that reveal different aspects of the community and its environment. Locals, including writer Nette Hilton and aboriginal artist Scott Rotumah, supplied artwork for the rocks. Students at the Bogangar Public School undertook a workshop resulting in drawings of the local plant species found in the dunes of Cabarita Beach.
