Join representatives of the Office of Australian War Graves (OAWG) and Southern Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust (SMCT) for a guided walk through the Springvale War Cemetery and the Victorian Garden of Remembrance located within Springvale Botanical Cemetery.

Come along and hear about how those who have died in war and those who die afterwards of causes related to their war service are commemorated, including in the Victorian Garden of Remembrance. Walk through the very carefully curated gardens amidst commemorative structures and learn that they are commemorative places alive with purpose – memorialisation and remembrance.

Enjoy conversations and opportunity to ask questions with horticultural staff. Office of Australian War Graves staff will discuss how eligible Australian veterans can be commemorated by the Australian Government.

The walking tour will start at the Centre for Care & Wellbeing (CCW) building at 10am. The seated presentation will start at approximately 11.30am in The Retreat room in the CCW Building located on Third Drive.

Bookings essential.
