Two pine trees commemorate the centenary of the ANZAC landing in April 1915 at Gallipoli in Turkey during World War One. 

On 25 April 1915 Australian and New Zealand soldiers landed at what is now called Anzac Cove on the Gallipoli Peninsula.

For the vast majority of the 16,000 Australians and New Zealanders who landed on that first day, this was their first experience of combat. By that evening, 2000 of them had been killed or wounded.

The Gallipoli campaign was a military failure. However, the traits that were shown there – bravery, ingenuity, endurance and mateship – have become enshrined as defining aspects of the Australian character.

Front Inscription

        A long way
        from home

These trees were grown from seed
originally collected from the one
remaining Lone Pine on the shores of
Gallipoli, in Turkey.

In May 2015, they were planted here
to remember that day - 100 years earlier
- when our ANZAC troops landed on
those shores.

Lest we forget.
