Bushfire Memorials

Bushfire memorials will provide an opportunity to pay tribute to loved ones lost in the 2009 bushfires, as well as those who lost homes and property, and those who were affected in other ways by the events that forever changed our lives. The development of the memorials is a community effort and a collaboration between all community members, including those who were fire affected and those who were not.

Throughout the memorials consultation process, arbitrary timelines have not been followed. The philosophy of ‘it will take however long it takes’ has been the driver of the time frame.

Council is pleased to advise that the final designs have been confirmed and can be viewed here:
