Surrounded by their community, Healesville’s fallen and returned soldiers are honoured by name on a simple wooden parquetry floor tile imbued with the history of The Healesville Memorial Hall.
The Healesville Memorial Hall has served as a gathering place since it was built after World War 1 where returned soldiers and community members met, danced and even fell in love, whilst remembering those who were not lucky enough to return to their home town.
