Just down off the main road was this array of tree trunks all mucked about with a chain saw. Must take some skill to carve all the features out with a burly great instrument like that. What a great attraction for the visiting public.

This was a truly unique and wonderful commemoration to Australian soldiers from this area. A fabulous wood carver and a great part of history conserved. You should definitely duck off the highway and see them.

To learn the history of the trees was interesting. A fantastic memorial to the soldiers. Nice park and surrounds, lovely place to stop for lunch (BYO). A nice little town, to stop and reflect!

The trees used in these carvings were planted in 1918 as a tribute to local soldiers lost in WWI. By 2001 the trees had become unsafe, and were to be removed completely. Fortunately, an opportunity to create this heartfelt and original memorial was taken. After extensive fund raising, Mr Eddie Freeman used a chainsaw to carve the trees into the... More

Some really cool and unique carvings in the centre of an old country town. If you get the chance, read up on some of the history of why they were carved as it is quite interesting.

Very impressive sculptures. Worth the little detour. These trees would have been removed losing the memorial to soldiers from the area. Beautiful tribute.
