Photographs supplied by Graeme Saunders

A tree commemorates those who served on H.M.A.H.S. Wanganella during World War Two. 

Originally named Achimota, the liner was acquired by Huddart Parker after the original sale to Elder Dempster Lines fell through. Renamed Wanganella, the ship sailed between New Zealand and Australia until 1941, when she was converted into a hospital ship. As Australian Hospital Ship (AHS) Wanganella, the ship operated in support of Australian forces until 1946, when she was returned to her civilian operator.
