Did You Know: Sir Isaac Newton's Legacy at Monash

Newton's Apple tree was planted at the Clayton campus in 1975 and is a cutting from the original tree from which Sir Isaac Newton reportedly observed an apple fall, prompting him to formulate his theories of motion and gravity, one of the most remarkable insights in human history.

The Flower of Kent variety apple is located in the Kenneth Hunt Memorial Garden bordered by Buildings 30, 31, 33 and 34 (see attached map)
