The 150-acre site is home to over 380 thought-provoking memorials covering both military and civilian associations, along with tributes for individuals. Rich in design and symbolism, and sympathetic to the lush gardens they inhabit, the memorials and their stories are fascinating. Included are a Guided Walk, the volunteers are very knowledgeable about the history of the site, the memorials featured and our plans for the future and also the Land Train, take a trip on the covered land train and enjoy the running commentary as you explore the grounds of the Arboretum and the symbolism behind the memorials. The tour lasts for approximately 50 minutes and covers around two thirds of the Arboretum grounds.
