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. 

The Library remains open as usual during Stone Day festivities, however other University buildings may be closed. 

Stone Week usually marks the lead up to Stone Day with various social activities on campus.
