International Wall of FriendshipPrint Page
Monument commemorates the contribution of migrants to Tasmania. The International Wall of Friendship was built to bring all of Tasmania`s communities closer together and to provide a tribute to the contribution that migrant communities have made to the states development.
The International Wall of Friendship was conceived as a lasting memorial to the bonds of friendship and goodwill of many nations who have made Tasmania their home and their contribution and committment to the progress and well being of the State.
The Wall of Friendship has become a shrine for those communities which it represents. Each year communities gather there to celebrate days of national and international significance flying the Australian flag and the flags of their countries of origin.
