Anzac Walk


   

This a $25,000 project commemorating the 100th Anniversary of World War 1.  The concept is a path across the reserve at the corner of Black Road and Ridgway Drive, Flagstaff Hill and includes a sculptural wall featuring poppies and ceramics researched and made by school children and community groups.  Stage 1 was officially opened on Friday 10th June.  Work is progressing and more is to come.  Engraved pavers have been inserted into the paved area. The centre 'gate' has been installed and a hedge planted. More details HERE
