Long Description:
This peace memorial is located on Hay St, Perth, adjacent to Wesley Church (one of the more prominent churches in the city). It is in the shape of a stylised tree, composed of metal, approximately 1m tall. The tree commemorates the prayers from the children of CHOGM (Commonwealth Heads Of Government Meeting), held in Perth in early 2011. Each leaf holds the name of one country, whose representative visited the conference.

There are two plaques, one on the tree itself, the other on the pavement before the tree. At this time the area is still undergoing final adjustment.
