History

Begun in 1992, The Mulwaree High School Remembrance Project is a joint school-community initiative. It comprises two parts: the Museum and its collection of military memorabilia and a Remembrance Corridor along the east and north borders of the school. This comprises an Australian native tree planted for Goulburn service men and women killed on active service in the two World Wars and the Vietnam War. This corridor was listed on the New South Wales War memorial Register in 2016.
