Remembrance Driveway: a cultural landscape revealed

The Remembrance Driveway is an extended landscape feature that stretches between two Australian capital cities, Sydney and Canberra. The Driveway is made up of individual tree and shrub plantations, groves and parks creating a rhythm of cultivated landscapes along the roadsides of the Hume and Federal Highways. The plantations have been designed as aesthetically pleasing, organised, cultural landscapes. With national community and business involvement the Remembrance Driveway was established as a living memorial to those who served in World War II. It continues to retain significant social and historic value as a living war memorial to all Australian service men and women. This paper assesses the significance of the Remembrance Driveway against the accepted heritage standards in Australia and New South Wales, and considers the difficulty of assessing this broad scale senescing landscape against the standard heritage measures in Australia.(a)For the covering entry of this conference, please see ITRD abstract no.
