The Tree of Life: Gift of Peace is the first Aus­tralian sculp­ture of­fered to the in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned park. The sculp­ture was in­spired by, and pays re­spect to, Ja­panese atomic sur­vivor com­mu­ni­ties. Cock­burn has a his­tory of pro­mot­ing, no­tably through its an­nual Hiroshima Day event fea­tur­ing rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Con­sul Gen­eral of Ja­pan.
