Dedication

Front Inscription

This fruit tree was planted as a living reminder of the local girls who enlisted in the Australian Womens Land Army (AWLA) during World War 2

'On the farms and in the dairies,
on the outback station runs,
those girls with grit are needed,
just as much as men with guns.`
