5000 Poppies -ANZAC Centenary Project

A Community Tribute of Respect and Rememberance

Thursday 23rd April to Sunday 26th April

For the pat two years volunteer crochet enthusiasts have been creating poppies as a community tribute of respect and rememberance to honour Australia’s servicemen and women who fought in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations.

At the time the  project started the target of 5000 seemed like a big feat to conquer, yet with unexpected popularity that has reached all corners of Australia as well as overseas, the poppy count is now over 250,000.

On a damp ANZAC Eve night [25th April] we walked up to Federation Square to seeing the amazing tribute initiated and the brainchild of Melbourne woman Lynn Berry.  Lyn first put out the call two years ago requesting 120 poppies to honour her father, who served in World War II, tonight Federation Square is blanketed in the 250,000 poppies, attached with personal memories and stories.
