The First and Second Fleet Memorial is the only garden memorial to the First and Second Fleets in Australia.

The stories of those who arrived on the ships, their life, and first encounters with the Australian country are presented throughout the Garden.

The memorial lies on the banks of Quirindi Creek, the perfect location to stop, take a break, picnic and be inspired while learning more about the history of Australia. Adjoined to the Memorial Garden is a free camping area with barbecues, tables and amenities as well as a children's playground.
