Mulwaree High School Remembrance CorridorPrint Page Print this page

The Remembrance Corridor along the eastern and northern borders of the school is comprised of an Australian native tree for every Goulburn & District service man or woman killed in active service during the two World Wars and the Vietnam War.

The Remembrance Corridor consist of 323 trees planted for veterans from Goulburn killed in the First World War and 82 trees planted for those killed in the Second World War. An additional two trees were planted, one at the start and finish of the tree corridor, in honour of the six Goulburn men killed in Vietnam. Each tree bears a brass plaque underneath, listing the service details of these veterans.

The school is also home to a Remembrance Museum featuring military memorabilia which was established in 1992. 

Funding of $4254 was received in 2014 through the ANZAC Centenary Grants Program for the engraving and placement of new plaques at the base of trees in memory of those from the district who lost their lives at Gallipoli.  The plaques were laid in 2016. 

Federal Member for Hume Angus Taylor has visited Goulburn’s WW1 Remembrance Corridor where students from Mulwaree High School have laid new plaques to recognise Goulburn and district men killed at Gallipoli. Mulwaree High School received an Anzac Centenary Grant from the Federal Government in 2015, enabling Year 9 History students to lay 41 new plaques that recognise local contributions to WW1.

“It is great that the students from Mulwaree have been able to recognise and pay tribute to our fallen local heroes in such a way,” Mr Taylor said.

The new plaques acknowledge 31 men killed at Gallipoli from Goulburn and surrounds, three men who died at Turkish prisoner of war camps and Goulburn men with bravery post-nominals.

The Remembrance Corridor, along McDermott Drive, features Australian native trees in recognition of every Goulburn and District service man or woman killed in active service during 20th century conflicts. The remembrance museum at the school also includes a growing collection of military memorabilia from the Goulburn area, totalling about seven thousand items.

“This is a great way for the contributions of our service men and women to be recognised and remembered, and it is especially important that it is preserved for the younger generation,” Mr Taylor said.
