On 21 Oct 2005 the ANBG honoured its past Curator, John Wrigley, as part of the celebrations for the 35th anniversary of the official opening of the ANBG in 1970.
The Rock Garden where the plaque is located, along with the development of the Rainforest Gully, was a major achievement for John during his time at the Gardens. He went on to promote rock gardens and rockery plants in his many publications.
