A special remembrance mural in Melbourne's Hosier Lane, paid tribute to the soldiers who fought in Flanders Fields, Belgium, during the Battle of Passchendaele 100 years ago.

On behalf of VISITFLANDERS, The Walshe Group delivered a creative street art project in Melbourne's Hosier Lane to commemorate the Centenary of the Battle of Passchendaele.  This unique project used a new medium to reach a wider audience and garnered significant news media interest and social media coverage.

VISITFLANDERS commissioned this artistic impression as part of its five-year commemoration program. It is one of the commemorative activities to remember the unique historical significance that the Great War had on this small region of Belgium from 1914-18. The area still attracts many Commonwealth visitors, keen to find out more about this period of history, which shaped society today.

Sonia Holt, Australian Trade Manager VISITFLANDERS said, “We wanted to commemorate the Centenary of the Battle of Passchendaele is a unique way to remind people of the importance of always remembering Passchendaele – and to continue visiting Flanders Fields.”
