North Queensland Garden of Remembrance

LocationTownsville, Queensland, Australia
ClientDepartment of Veteran Affairs

Place Design Group was engaged by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs
to design a Garden of Remembrance within the heritage listed Anzac Park
on The Strand, Townsville.
The project required careful design to fit within the existing mature tree
plantings within the park. The dedication walls were laid out to fit within
the existing organic forms occurring within the park and are linked to a
visitor’s shelter with seating and a water feature to provide a location for
quiet reflection of past veterans.
The overall finished works sits peacefully under the overhead tree
canopies that provide dappled light and a sense of tranquillity to this
commemorative space
