Palmer InstitutePrint Page
The restoration of the foundation stone for the Palmer Institute was undertaken to commemorate the Bicentenary of European settlement of Australia.
The bicentenary of Australia was celebrated in 1988. It marked 200 years since the arrival of the First Fleet of British convict ships at Sydney in 1788. 1988 is considered the official bicentenary year of the founding of Australia. The Australian Bicentennial Authority (ABA) was set up to plan, fund and coordinate projects that emphasized the nation's cultural heritage.
