Soldier's Memorial Park
Ağu 2021
So...the best way to describe this park is-

It takes a little bit of this
Oh with a little bit of that
A little bit of good
Yeah with a little bit of bad
You know that
Life's a contradiction
And you can't
Escape the fact
You gotta take
A little bit of this
With a little bit of that

:) Seriously though, it does have a little bit of this and a little bit of that. There is a bandstand, there are boards with historical information about the flour mill, BBQ area, picnic area, public toilets, grassy areas, historic lamps, arty pieces and of course ... there is the soldier's memorial... which is quite fitting because that is what the park is called- Soldier's Memorial Park.

And who is Jacka? Well Jacka is "Albert Jacka VC MC & Bar", he was an Australian recipient of the Victoria Cross, the highest decoration for gallantry "in the face of the enemy" that can be awarded to members of the British and Commonwealth armed forces. Jacka was the first Australian to be decorated with the VC during the First World War, receiving the medal for his actions during the Gallipoli Campaign. He later served on the Western Front and was twice further decorated for his bravery.

There are some really interesting information boards about Jacka and of course, Albert Chalmers Borella, VC, MM... also another local who received the Victoria's Cross.

So I am guessing I am telling you that it's worth making a stop here... I found the park to be really interesting.

Interesting pit stop to view the statues of two local war heroes (Albert Jacka and Albert Borella). Also features a great playground and sculptures. At the back of park are toilets and shaded picnic area

One of the nicest parks I’ve seen in Victoria
