Carving a History

This comprehensive guide to the sandstone centrepiece of The University of Queensland’s St Lucia campus – the Great Court – navigates the reader effortlessly through the site’s iconic carvings and their history.

Carving a history: a guide to the Great Court is a major update and restructure of the existing publication A guide to the Great Court, first produced by UQ's Media and Information Services (now Office of Marketing and Communications) and published by UQP in 1979, then revised and updated in 1992.

This updated guide is designed as an easily accessible reference and navigational tool for staff, students, or visitors to UQ, so they can easily discover the carvings in the Great Court and identify the date each was carved, as well as their history and meaning. It also aims to explain in an easily accessible format what the Great Court carvings represent (several new carvings have been added since the book was last updated), and to provide a souvenir for visitors engaging with UQ.

To complement the book, a mobile app is also available for free, which guides the reader through the Great Court, searchable by location or carving.

To order individual copies or download the mobile app, visit UQ staff who wish to order copies for events should contact
