How We Support Our Veterans and Military Members
Remembering Our Past and Connecting With Our Youth
Branxton to Greta Memorial Cycleway
Joining the towns of Branxton and Greta in the central area of the Hunter Region in NSW, the new cycleway will become a dedicated memorial to the many Hunter Valley men and women who served their nation in uniform.
Along the cycleway will be many reflections points highlighting those who have served in wars and other peacekeeping missions since federation
We are hopeful the Memorial will have ongoing Veteran participation through the hosting of school groups, events and ongoing maintenance.
Connecting With Our History and Supporitng Our Veterans
Military Armoured Restoration Society
The Military Armoured Restoration Society (MARS) has been established to preserve Military vehicle history, by acquiring military vehicles that have been withdrawn from Military Service and then restoring them for use in remembrance days and other community events. The actual restoration will be done by Veterans who will yearn for mateship, sense of purpose and a strong desire to achieve something worthwhile.
Supporting Our Veterans and Supporting Our Community
Military Members Shed
The Military Members Shed was established to bring veterans together to work on, support and manage the projects and activities undertaken by the Hunter ANZAC Memorial Ltd.
The Military Members Shed is also a place that embraces mateship that underpins past military life. It is a place where veterans and military members find companionship and fellowship while working on initiatives and activities that support themselves, their families and their communities.
Preserving Our Military History
AH 1733 Krawarree
Built-in 1945 as a sea ambulance to save wounded Diggers in and around the top end of Australia, PNG and the Solomons, the AH Krawarree is the last surviving vessel of the five that were built to perform this most important role.
The AH Krawarree is an impressive boat over 80' long and with a hull master built from 1000-year-old Huon Pine from Tasmania. The project is attracting enormous attention from leading boat builders from around Australia who want to be involved in restoring this most exceptional piece of Australian wartime history.
Once refurbished the Krawarree will re-enter the water and fulfil a busy schedule of travelling around Australian ports giving Veterans special sailing days, adopting youth programs and working in with deserved charities wanting to use the resources for their best interests particularly in relation to assisting with mental health issues.
Connecting Our Youth
Education & Curriculum Development
The Hunter Anzac Memorial Ltd is proud to be working with Tracey Breese, Kurri Kurri High School Principal and inspiring education leader in the NSW Department of Education. The relationship will support the development of learning resources that will be directly connected to recognised NSW and Australian education syllabuses.
