The Avenue symbolises the final journey home of the fallen, and preserves forever the gratitude and respect the nation bestows on all those to whom we owe a debt... that can never be repaid.
Illawara Flame Trees
Flame trees are a native species, they are hardy, suited to the area and flower from November through to early January and in full bloom around Remembrance Day, creating a spectacular showing of beautiful flame red flowers and representing the ‘cycle of life’.
The intention is to create a timeless memorial of world standard and national significance. Enticing families, friends, mates, serving military personnel, and everyday Australians to come, remember, reflect and be reminded of the price that has been paid for the freedoms we all enjoy and yet can so easily take for granted.
