A cairn marks the start of the Remembrance Driveway to Sydney. In 2002 three Red Spotted Gums were planted by the Governor-General in the Remembrance Park, behind the Australian War Memorial, Canberra to mark the Canberra end of the Driveway.

The Remembrance Driveway is a tribute from those who remember yesterday and have faith in tomorrow. It commemorates those who served in the Australian Armed Forces in World War Two and subsequent wars or who have served since then in defence of the nation`s interests, in operational theatres around the world.

The Remembrance Driveway is a living memorial of  320 kilometres of plantations and groves of native trees and shrubs, parks and rest areas between Sydney and Canberra.
