September 11 Terrorist Attack Print Page Print this page

A tree commemorates the 10 Australian victims of the September 11 2001 terrorist attack in New York. The large Hoop Pine and a plaque inscribed with the ten victims' names sits prominently in the Royal Botanic Gardens between the Opera House and Mrs. Macquarie's Chair.

At 8.45am on 11 September 2001, a passenger plane, which had been hijacked by Al Qaeda terrorists, crashed into the North Tower of New York's World Trade Center. Fifteen minutes later, a second plane slammed into the South Tower. By 10.30am the Twin Towers had collapsed, removing one of New York's most famous landmarks. Over 2600 people died in the terrorist attack, including ten Australians.
