The Japanese cherry trees commemorate those who died in service or were killed in action in World War One and commemorates the Allied Victory. The trees for this plantation were presented by Mr. Francis Snow. A cherry tree was planted at the site in 1986 to perpetuate the special meaning of the place. 

The short 950m return walk along the RSL Walk trail links the plantation with the Australian and American Forces Plantation.
