The memorial consists of a series of upright granite faced panels inscribed with the names of each Australian soldier who lost their life in the Vietnam War. The purpose of the memorial was to create an environmental memorial that expressed the nation’s respect for Vietnam Veterans and to honour their service.
The Cherry Tree Walk consists of a walking/bike track beside the Mittagong Rivulet and 526 cherry trees have been planted, dedicated to each and every soldier who died during the war. The walk is particularly attractive in spring when the cherry trees are in flower.Incorporated into the design of the Memorial has been a Monument, inscribed with the names of the Australians who gave their lives in the service of their country.
A lovely spot to picnic or stroll along the pathway for 5 km.
