This park like memorial is just by the entrance to Snug Beach and the caravan park. Easy to read and informative signage, to remind everyone of the terrible 1967 bushfires in Hobart and surrounds

We had a visitor from overseas and stopped in on the way back from eating a meal in Kingston. It has a new plaque for the 50th anniversary. This is a peaceful place.

If you are in the Channel area, make sure you head to Snug and spend some quiet time to pay your respect for this memorial. Brings back memories if I me you experienced the 1967 Bushfires in Tassie.

This memorial is situation near the sports ground, river and beach. If you walk to the beach you pass it. I was very impressed with the design and layout. A worthy memorial for those who lost their lives in the fire.

64 people died in the fires - not sure which children you are asking about? There is a lot online about the fires - just google "Black Tuesday fires Tasmania"
