Shire of Mundaring
ANZAC Memorial Site Signage
Blackboy Hill was the site of the largest Western Australian military training camp during the World War One, with over 32,000 troops training there from 1914 to 1918. The 11th Battalion, who were the first to train there and be shipped out from Fremantle, landed at Gallipoli at dawn on 25 April 1915.
Situated in the hills district on the outskirts of Perth, Blackboy Hill has been a memorial site since 1958. In preparation for the 2014 Centenary ANZAC celebrations, the Mundaring and Hills Historical Society sought designs for new interpretive signage to replace the site’s existing, rather worn and tired signage. Having extensive experience in developing signage and museological interpretations, Media on Mars was chosen to complete the project.
The signage needed to convey the importance of the site in Australia’s war efforts and also had to be completed by Friday 31 October 2014 when a group of defence force cadets would undertake a commemorative march from the Blackboy Hill camp site.
You can find Blackboy Hill Memorial Site at Innamincka Road, Blackboy Hill, Greenmount, WA 6056
