The Grieving Mother Memorial,

of which I have shared several photos and posts

is situated in the left corner of this image

of Ballarat’s Arch of Victory.

The Ballarat Avenue of Honour is famous for being

the first avenue of its kind in Australia

(perhaps in the world)

and the longest of its kind in the southern hemisphere.

It incorporates the Ballarat Arch of Victory and extends

for approximately 22 kilometres.

In total, the trees represent 3912 Ballarat and district

men and women who served in 

World War One – 528 of whom

were killed in battle or died

of wounds or disease.

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

Lest We Forget
