Heritage Trail

The RAE Association (Vic) have created Heritage Marker Trail. The Heritage Marker consists of a stainless steel plaque with a description go the site and a QR code for access to more details, photos etc. These plaques are mounted to the top of a treated pine post or similar. Since 2018 these markers have been erected at sites of historical significance that showcase the work done by Victorian Sappers in Victoria.

The Plaque will have the RAE Badge and the words Royal Australian Engineers followed by a brief description of the project. There is a QR Code, this is a code that can be scanned by your phone. A free app is available to download from the app store for this purpose. When the QR Code is scanned it will upload a PDF File that will give you a complete description of the project with photos etc for you to copy or read at home at your leisure.

Below are sites that the plaques have been installed with more to be added soon.
