This third and final Stage of the ‘Revitalising St Peters Precinct’ Project, reflects the heritage and character of the St Peters Precinct, while generating vitality, innovation and economic development, through the creation of a new and vibrant civic space for the community.

To commemorate the Centenary of ANZAC, the Council resolved to dedicate St Peters Street as an Avenue of Honour, which leads to the St Peters Soldier’s Memorial Statue, erected following the First World War.

The St Peters Civic Plaza Project also included the installation of the Council’s Major Quadrennial Public Artwork, an interpretive commemoration of the Centenary of ANZAC Day in 2015, which was unveiled at the event.

Mayor Robert Bria officially dedicated the Avenue of Honour during a formal ceremony held at the Soldier's Memorial, before unveiling the Centenary of ANZAC Artwork.
