Names etched in history

The National Museum of Australia invited donors to help transform its entrance into a bush garden and People’s Walk. Family names and the names of loved ones were etched into bluestone pavers on our People’s Walk in 2018–21.

Museum entrance

The People’s Walk leads visitors from the Christina and Trevor Kennedy Garden to the Museum entrance. The walk was key to our Kennedy Garden redesign and was the first step of an ambitious Master Plan to 2030, doubling our exhibition space and play areas for children of all ages.

The Kennedy Garden features a welcome to visitors from traditional owners. The People’s Walk continues this welcome, extending it on behalf of Australia’s diverse population.
