What is Stone Day / Stone Week / Stonefest?
Stone Day is the anniversary of the dedication of the University's foundation stone by Prime Minister Gorton on the 28th of October 1968. The Stone can be found near the Student Centre in Building 1. The unveiling ceremony was notable because a mischievous student claiming to be the Stone Fairy hid underneath the cloth.
Stonefest (called Stone Day in 2012) is an annual music festival held at the University of Canberra at the end of October. The Library remains open as usual during Stonefest however other University buildings may be closed.
Stone Week usually marks the lead up to Stone Day/Stonefest with various social activities on campus.
