RAAF Memorial Grove

AviationPosted by Peter Smith Tue, October 09, 2018 13:45:40

The Remembrance Driveway links Sydney with Canberra. The rest stops along the way are named after Australian VC winners. As we drove past the last rest area today the wingman spotted a sign mentioning an RAAF Memorial Grove so after checking in to our hotel we went back to see what we could see.

Set under the flight path of former RAAF Station Canberra is a Memorial Grove established to provide a place for reflection. It is dedicated to all RAAF veterans and features many specific plaques, some to squadrons, some to trades, some to individuals etc. There are also information boards detailing the aviation history of the area.

I'm glad we went back for a look and, despite the closeness to the main highway, it really is quite peaceful and serves the veterans well.
