The Lone Pine was grown from a seed of the Lone Pine at Gallipoli which grew on a ridge where the ANZACS fought in World War I.

It was propagated from seeds saved from a cone brought home by Private Thomas Keith McDowell from Gallipoli after WWI.

The seedling was planted at Wattle Park on Sunday 7 May 1933 under full military honour by the Mayor of Camberwell, Cr. J.H. Nettleton and the Mayor of Box Hill, Cr. J.K. Archer.
