In 2017, I was fortunate enough to gain

a preview of the

Grieving Mother Memorial

in Ballarat.

From memory the

Grieving Mother

had been designed and

created by local artists.


She was receiving some finishing touches

as I photographed her…


…the day before the official opening/unveiling

to the public.

As ANZAC Day is Saturday April 25

I thought I would share some

appropriate images taken

during my Ballarat visit.

I was in Ballarat the day prior to

The Grieving Mother Memorial…


…being officially opened.

It is situated near Ballarat’s

Arch of Victory

in the

Avenue of Honour
