The resident mother duck of the Memorial has returned to the Pool of Reflection in the Memorial’s Commemorative Area with 10 ducklings. The mother duck is a regular at the Memorial, having nurtured seven groups of ducklings in the past five years. As the Memorial spokeswoman Marylou Pooley states, "It's lovely to see new life in a commemorative area that represents so much sadness.”

There is a short opportunity to see the ducklings learning to swim in the Pool of Reflection, as they usually migrate to Lake Burley Griffin once the ducklings are a few days old.
