George & Davis Streets Apex park, Heyfield, Victoria 3858
A permanent state memorial to Victoria’s timber workers has been built in Heyfield. The committee is establishing this memorial walk with the hope that it will be a place where families who have suffered a loss may have their loved ones commemorated and join with others in remembrance and reflection.
The memorial is in the Lions Park Heyfield with the names of those fatally injured on a plaque within stone pillars as you walk around the memorial. Those eligible for these plaques must have worked within Victoria and lost their lives whilst working in the timber industry either in the bush, coupe, mill or cartage
