The memorial pictured on this page is located at a lookout site, currently part of the Kinglake National Park, on Bald Spur Road.
The site’s topography provides a comprehensive view down the valley to the St Andrews area burnt on Black Saturday, neighbouring Strathewan and across to Christmas Hills. It has an upper and a lower terrace: the upper holds a large space for gatherings and the lower is a flat, circular walk around the spur with steep slopes on each side.
On the upper terrace, the current design encompasses an open circle of 14 stone benches, which form a concentric ring around a circular steel band. The band is flush with the ground and has poetic text inscribed in honour of the St Andrews bushfire events, as well as 173 circular imprints in remembrance of all the lives lost across Victoria in the bushfires at the time.
The lower terrace entrance has a series of burnt posts and signage, with educational information regarding fire history and ecology of the region, as an avenue of knowledge. Within the looping path on this terrace, the 14 monoliths are sited in relationship to the landscape and in varying positions (horizontal, vertical and buried).
