Gallipoli Pine commemorates the 60th anniversary of departure from Albany of first troopships in World War One. During World War One, Albany was the assembly point for many Australian and New Zealand mounted troops before they left to fight in Egypt.

The Lone Pine was a solitary tree on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey, which marked the site of the Battle of Lone Pine in 1915. Pines which are planted as a memorial to the Australian and New Zealand soldiers who fought in Gallipoli are also known as "Lone Pines" or "Gallipoli Pines", referencing the original tree.
