The colonial history of Flagstaff Gardens is linked to the hill - the vantage point that dominates the site, where a 'flag staff' or 'flag pole' was erected in 1840. A range of message flags informed residents of the early settlement when a ship came in to the port. Features include: the Pioneers' Memorial; the Separation Monument; one piece of the ‘Another View’ art installation; a rose bed and scented garden and much more.
