On October 6, 1917, the Eumundi Women’s Recruiting Committee planted six Queensland figs along Main Street (now Memorial Drive) and Gridley Street, and with relatives of the fallen they would add another 14 trees over the next two years. In total, 20 trees were planted, each representing a local whose life was lost in WW1. These trees of tribute are located along Gridley Street & Memorial Drive, Eumundi,Queensland.

FURTHER DETAILS

Of the 20 original Eumundi memorial figs planted to commemorate WW1 servicemen, only five survive. The rest have been replaced over the years with three camphor laurels, three lily pillies, two flame trees (Brachychiton acerifolius) and a jacaranda. Original memorial plaques have also been replaced.
