Lone Pine Park

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Connections to the past are a vital key to the future. In Lone Pine Park, opposite the Cowra Visitor Information Centre, you will find a tree that was propagated from a pine seed off the famous Lone Pine at Gallipoli. The story goes that at least two Australian soldiers pocketed cones and seeds from Lone Pine Ridge during those horror days of World War I.

On bringing these seeds back to Australia, they tended them and grew new trees in remembrance of their fallen comrades. One tree was presented to the Australian War Memorial and is now known as Lone Pine Tree, and the Cowra RSL Sub-branch also received a tree, and planted it in what is now known as Lone Pine Park.

The battles of Gallipoli, where Australia lost more than 2000 soldiers, remind people of the heroism and mateship that is ingrained in the Australian spirit. Take a moment to remember them at the foot of the tree of hope.
