Statement of heritage value - Historic Kerbstones, The Mall, Smith Street, Darwin
The former Smith Street porcellanite stone kerb and gutter, reused in the Smith Street Mall planter box and pavement, date from the early 1890s. The stones quarried from Emery Point are an example of the hand hewn stone blocks used in Darwin’s early street drainage systems. The stone blocks illustrate the use of locally available porcellanite stone, a once commonly used building material.
