A hedge of rosemary commemorates those who have served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved.

The hedge was planted by students from St Patricks Primary School. The rosemary was the special rosemary that was on sale as "grown from cuttings from a rosemary bush bought back by a wounded digger from Gallipoli". 

Since ancient times rosemary has been believed to have properties to improve the memory. Perhaps because of this, rosemary became an emblem of both fidelity and remembrance in literature and folklore. Traditionally, sprigs of rosemary are worn on ANZAC Day and sometimes on Remembrance Day, and are usually handed out by Legacy and the RSL. Rosemary has particular significance for Australians, as it is found growing wild on the Gallipoli peninsula.
