Rotary Tribute Walk This is a multi million dollar community service project by the members to place plaques along the foreshore in tribute to those who have served overseas -. It was launched in June 2013, is due to be opened 2020 and due for completion 2025.
The concept and benefits of the Wynnum Manly Rotary Tribute Walk are set on many levels. One of it's primary reasons is to keep alive a culture that exists in Australia that developed from the birth of the ANZAC's.
We can see future generations of children visiting 'The Walk' and reading of the courageous efforts of so many men and women who have served overseas to help maintain Australia's values and principles with many paying the ultimate sacrifice.
This project is a powerful visual reminder when one looks at over 6 Kilometres of walkway with embedded plaques. The project is located on the waters edge and is an easy walking flat pathway making it extremely suitable for those with a handicap.
Families can stand near a plaque on the pathway foreshore and look out over the beautiful Moreton Bay to reflect on what may have been.
There is no doubt that this tribute walk will generate many visitors to the area, and the belief is that those visitors will be well educated by the time they leave by the courtesy of the interactive touch screen consoles located along the 'Walk' giving details of conflicts and theatre' of war.
This is a major community project being driven by people passionate about our history and passionate in maintaining a 'spirit' that was hatched by virtue of the ANZAC's
