Donations

Please support The Vietnam Veterans Commemorative Walk with a donation.

Amount: 

 

The Vietnam Veterans Commemorative Walk is located in High Street at the juction of Emily Street and Tallarook Street, Seymour, Victoria.

Seymour is a town of approximately 6000 people about an hours drive north of Melbourne Victoria, and is well serviced by road and rail, again just over an hour from Southern Cross Station. It has been the centre for the pastoral industry north of the Great Dividing Range since its founding in 1839.

The town also has a proud military history dating back to the Boer War when troops were trained in the surrounding hills prior to embarkation. January 2010 was celebrated as the 100th anniversary of Lord Kitcheners visit to the area where he approved of the proposed plans for a more extensive training facility to be built here. Light Horse Park, 3 Km east, was the centre of training for the Light Horse Regiments during the First World War. There are literally scores of plaques in the surrounds of Seymour highlighting various units’ bases for the Second World War. Army personnel old and young are well aware of Puckapunyal, 12 Km west of town, even if they have never been posted there, still used to this day as a major training facility.
