Vietnam Veterans Commemorative Walk
The commemorative walk located in Seymour is the only one of it’s kind in Australia dedicated solely to Vietnam Veterans. The walk has the names of the 60,000 Australian servicewoman and servicemen who served during this dark time in Australia’s history. The commemorative walk is located on High Street in the centre of Seymour with ample parking to complete the walk.
The Walk is a meandering red earth path set in native trees and grasses that resemble rubber trees and rice paddies. These two plants are synonymous with Vietnam. The centre piece of this Walk is the wall, made up of panels of DigiGlass with the name of every Serviceman and Woman who served, in their various capacities in that conflict. The names are separated only by the Service in which they served and are in alphabetical order. The plinths on which the panels stand have holes for you to place Poppies; the effect is to have a field of Poppies under the names. Behind the names is the picture story of the Vietnam conflict. There are areas of contemplation for people to use along the length of this walk.
