Commencing from Settlers Park entrance to the Mittagong Rivulet Reserve (at the foot of mighty Mt Gibraltar in Bowral), the beautiful Vietnam War Memorial Cherry Tree Walk (also known as Cherry Tree Walk) can be found.
This tranquil Walk is home to 526 cherry trees, with each tree dedicated to each soldier who died during the Vietnam War. It also honours the commitment of those who served Australia in the battle of the Long Hai Hills and the provinces of South Vietnam.
This avenue of cherry trees makes a lovely stroll or cycle, passing through monuments, the 5km long Mittagong Rivulet, and sections of parklands and plenty of rest areas, including romantic or family-friendly picnic spots.
A visit to the Cherry Tree Walk can be enjoyed all year round; however, during spring, the cherry trees blossom and create a magical walk filled with colour and aromas. (Cannot wait to return in spring!)
