Rockton, one of Ipswich's historic homes and listed with the National Trust, was also home for many years to one of south-east Queensland's most prolific writers and poets. A true artist, Helen Haenke devoted much of her life to the vibrant cultural creative scene of the 1960s and 1970s - opening her home to contemporaries such as Rodney Hall, Thomas Shapcott, Bruce Dawe and Oodgeroo Noonuccal. A one-time student of highly controversial artist Max Meldrum, Haenke also trained as a graphic artist and continued to paint throughout her life. Helen Haenke at Rockton is a visual celebration of the life of this respected artist and author, offering a selection of her finest artworks, poems, fiction and letters, and documenting her valuable contribution to Queensland cultural history.
