British artist Andy Goldsworthy was commissioned by the Department of Environment and Resource Management, Queensland Parks and Wildlife Division to create Strangler Cairn for the Conondale Range Great Walk.
Goldsworthy is noted for his sensitive response to the environment, which made him a perfect choice for working in the national park.
Strangler Cairn is made from granite and slate sourced from a local quarry. It is also planted with a small strangler fig - Ficus watkinsiana - which, over time will grow and 'strangle' the cairn.
