The sundial is dedicated to the memory of the late Malcolm Arnott (1910-1991).

A armillary sphere sundial, 2.4 m tall, 1.5 m internal ring diameter, weighing 1500 kilograms and made of silicon bronze, was designed specifically for the Herb Garden by John Ward and Margaret Folkard (Sundials Australia, Adelaide) in 1994.

Features herbs modelled in clay in high relief by Adelaide sculptor Karen Rumpf from drawings by Gardens’ illustrator Marion Westmacott. Both sundial and herb ring were cast by Dave Mune at the Art Foundry in Victoria.
