Matraville, Pioneer Memorial Park, First Fleeters Memorial

The First Fleeters Memorial is in Pioneer Memorial Park, which is part of the Eastern Suburbs Memorial Park, in the eastern suburb of Matraville. It was installed here in 2016 to commemorate twelve First Fleeters reinterred here with eleven granite panels on the perimeter etched with the ships’ names, each listing the names of those who sailed with the First Fleet. This statue is of Admiral Arthur Phillip, first Governor of New South Wales who led the British settlement and colonisation of Australia. The greyhound at his feet named Chara, was one of the greyhounds who came aboard the First Fleet ships and used in the new colony to hunt game.
