Stacking Stones (also known as rock balancing) has a long and varied tradition around the world.
Known as "cairns" they have been used to to mark the way along trails or highlight landmarks.
They have also been used as a medium to meditate with or express artistry.
It's a great opportunity to explore the concept of "centre of mass" with children and discuss how some rocks balance better than others.
Ranging from our considerable rocky coastline* to stormwater intervention swales, there are a number of places in the City of Marion you could try Stone Stacking.
