Gundagai, New South Wales, Australia

ANZAC Grove, located in Gundagai in southern NSW is a grouping of memorials centred around the Great War Memorial that is fashioned in the shape of a tree trunk. Pathways to north and south of the Great War Memorial lead to separate memorials commemorating those who served during the Vietnam War (northward) and (southward) to George Elliott of the 6th Australian Light Horse and all others who served at the Battle of Lone Pine during the Gallipoli campaign of the Great War. In addition a 40mm Bofors gun is mounted nearby as an additional memorial and tribute to all Australians who served during all conflicts.
