The turpentine trees behind the North Sydney Tramways Memorial were planted in 1995 as part of the Australia Remembers commemorations for the servicemen and servicewomen who served in World War Two.

For this occasion North Sydney Council redesigned the Park and planted the trees in the formation of a battalion. Turpentine trees were chosen because of their upright appearance and the strength and durability of their timber. The one olive tree in front of the turpentine grove is a symbol of peace.

"Australia Remembers, 1945-1995" was a program of activities organised by the Federal Government to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the end of World War Two.

`Australia Remembers 1945 - 1995`

These groves of trees were planted in August 1995 to pay tribute to all who endured World War II - not only those who made the ultime sacrifice but also those who kept the home-front running.  Australians fought around the world in action seen in four major `theatres`; the Asian Pacific region, the Middle East, Northern Africa and Europe.

Enter and reflect what would Australia be like were it not for the brave efforts of so many ?

Plaque :

Turpentine (Syncarpia glomulifera)

An Australian native species renowned for the strength and durability of its timber.
