Anzac Memorial Centenary Project

His Excellency General The Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Ret’d), Governor of New South Wales and his wife Mrs Linda Hurley were special guests at the Gunnedah Cenotaph this morning to aid in marking Gunnedah's contribution to the state-wide soil collection for the Anzac Memorial Centenary Project (The Anzac Memorial).

The Project is the multi-million dollar redevelopment of NSW’s pre-eminent memorial to the contribution of NSW and Australian veterans to the First World War in Hyde Park, Sydney. It will feature an artwork developed by artist Fiona Hall alongside Sydney architect Richard Johnson, displaying soil collected from approximately 1700 locations across NSW, including Gunnedah.

The place names from which the soil is collected are taken from the database of Great War enlistees, summing up the geographical reach of the call to serve.
