Front Inscription

The two pines situated in this area are seedling related to the original Lone Pine on Gallipoli and was planted to commemorate the brave deeds and sacrifices of the ANZACs

Battle of Lone Pine

At 5.30 am. on August 6, 1915, an officer blew a whistle and the Australians charged from their trenches into a cloud of shrapnel and a torrent of bullets.  Some fell before they cleared the parapets, others within a few strides.

Lone Pine was captured and reinforced, but the A. I. F. losses were extremely high.  More than 2000 Australians were killed or wounded in this single engagement.  Most of them in hand-to-hand fighting heavier than any other in which the Australians were to take part throughout the Great War.

Of the nine Victoria Crosses awarded to Australians on Gallipoli seven were won at Lone Pine.
