Tree Planting In recognition of the Port Arthur tragedy

  • Post author:

In recognition of the Port Arthur tragedy on 28/29 April 1996 the R.C. of Modbury, in conjunction with Trees for Life and staff and students of Modbury Primary School, undertook a planting of 35 eucalypts and casuarinas on a recently cleared reserve at Sandalwood Drive, St. Agnes. Each plant was intended to reflect upon the life of each of the victims of the rogue gunman on that fateful day. The planting was undertaken in May 1996.

In 2018 the City of TTG Council undertook significant refurbishment of the planted area including the replacement of a number of the plants which had not survived the initial planting.
