One of the two original Lone Pine trees to be grown in Australia from seeds collected from cones sent from Lone Pine in Gallipoli. This significant tree has an accompanying concrete seat with plaque attached.
Mrs G.T. McMullen wrote to the Inverell Municipal Council in January 1930 offering to give them a tree she had grown from seeds sent to her from Gallipoli. In reply, she was asked to send the tree to Inverell, where it was planted in Victoria Park and thrived.
More information about these historic Lone Pines can be found at the Australian War Memorial's website.
