A Lone Pine tree commemorates the centenary of the ANZAC landings at Gallipoli on the 25th April 1915. The tree was planted on the centenary of the Battle of Lone Pine. 

The Battle of Lone Pine was fought between Australian and Ottoman Empire forces during the First World War between 6 and 10 August 1915. Part of the Gallipoli campaign, the battle was part of a diversionary attack to draw Ottoman attention away from the main assaults against Sari Bair, Chunuk Bair and Hill 971, which became known as the August Offensive.
