Vietnam Memorial Walk Print Page
A series of upright panels with inscription and veteran names, together with a symbolic "Cherry tree walk" following the course of the 5 kilometre long Mittagong Rivulet Reserve commemorate those who died in service or were killed in action during the Vietnam War.
Construction of the monument started in 1995 with the aim to create a large, environmental memorial that expressed the nation’s respect for Vietnam veterans and honoured their service. The 526 cherry trees are each dedicated to a serviceman who died in the conflict. It also honours the commitment of those who served Australia in the battle of the Long Hai Hills and the provinces of South Vietnam.
