THEY SAY HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS…

We have been selling so fast that we have had to release a second stage.

There is lots more to Panorama but you need to come visit our display centre or check it out on the New Release page.

More than just landscaping at White Box Rise

So much more than just landscaping.

Take a drive around White Box Rise and you will see how much effort has gone into creating and designing our parks and gardens. It is not simply landscaping for the sake of it but a thoughtful, educational and respectful interpretation of urban planning specifically designed to instill visitors and residents with a sense of history, in honour of the selfless bravery and velour of our Australian service personnel.

Our latest installation continues the tribute to the ANZACs with further planting of mature date palms in the recently completed Kelliher extension and Rogers Avenues. These magnificent trees have long been recognised as a symbol of Australia’s activities in the Middle East over many years, and are a strong feature in countless military memorials around the country.

These palms also provide a dramatic, vertical accent to the streetscape of our newest release at White Box Rise ‘The Crescent’, which is set to become the home of the next White Box Rise Display Village.

Take a little time out and wander through our interconnected parklands to view the sculptures, read the stories and enjoy the extensive planting in this unique urban landscape. It is a journey worth taking.


Wartime ‘Tank Traps’ are now a playground feature for kids

The First World War Centenary is marked at White Box Rise by the completion of a ‘Tank Trap’ feature in the new playground for kids

Did you know that White Box Rise was once an army base and throughout the estate there are sculptures, stories and hidden military references designed into the every part of the landscaping and presentation.

The more obvious and moving salutes to our military heroes is Peace Park, where you can meander through the metal sculptures and read snapshots stories about the amazing acts of bravery undertaken by Victoria Cross Medal recipients. Even the streets bear the names of these very courageous men.

The entire estate is dotted with respectful annotations dedicated to our Australian military history. There are hidden treasures everywhere such as the path alignments that are modelled on tank movements or the steel bollards with twisted and folded form specially rusted to represent the military conflicts. There is ‘sprocket paving’ to reflect the drive sprockets of Centurion Tanks (post WWII) with ‘bolts’ and ‘sea bolts’ at path junctions and many references in metal in, and sail shading, to echo the wings of fighter aircraft - some sculptures even have real bullet holes.

The latest playground park feature has been completed at a time when the world is paying respect to the many fallen soldiers who lost their lives in WWI. The playground on Jacka Street has play and fitness equipment but also features Tank Traps as part of the mix. Similar to the ones shown in the image, these ‘Traps’ were used worldwide as a defense against armoured vehicles accessing coastlines – many are still in location on the Australian coastline. We now reference these ‘traps’ as part of the numerous children’s playground installments throughout the parks and reserves at White Box Rise.

Take a walk on the hike an bike trails to see if you can find some of the hidden treasures that were created to honour our proud military heritage but also provide visitors an opportunity to pause to think on the brave men and women but also consider the senselessness of war.

WAVES area manager Andrew Mundy said it had been a successful first season with more than 80,000 visitors. “If you look at Wodonga’s population of 35,000 — that’s every man, woman and child using the facility at least twice on average,” Mundy said.
