Centennial Park, Federation Pavilion

The Federation Pavilion is located along the Grand Drive in Centennial Park and commemorates the inauguration of the Federation of Australia at this site on 1 January 1901. This rotunda was designed by Alexander Tzannes and erected in 1988, the Bicentennial year of European Settlement. It was constructed around the 'Commonwealth Stone' and features a glass domed ceiling with a colourful design. An inscription around the pavilion is from a 1901 poem 'Australia' by Bernard O'Dowd that reads: "Mammon or Millennial Eden". The building was renovated and plaques were added to celebrate the Centenary of the Federation of Australia on 1 January 2001.
