The Shilling Wall and Garden runs across the front of the Queen Victoria Women’s Centre heritage building providing a place to reflect on inspiring women who have made a difference.
What is the Shilling Wall?
Erected in 2005, the Shilling Wall is an enduring tribute to women and is inscribed with the names of over 500 incredible women, celebrating their roles as mothers, grandmothers, caregivers, sisters, friends, colleagues and community contributors.
These incredible women may be teachers, politicians or journalists. They may be colleagues or community advocates or contributors whose work has been honoured. They may be loving and much loved mothers or grandmothers, or an affectionate aunt. They may be your daughter, partner, sister, mentor or friend.
The thing that all of these women have in common is that they have been recognised and paid tribute by someone who cares and values their contributions to the people around them.
