Migrants are being encouraged to take up one of the final plaques on the South West Migrant Memorial set to be erected in Bunbury.

About 420 migrants have taken up the opportunity to be included on the memorial, which is set to be installed in Queens Gardens by October.

Memorial chairman Lui Tuia said the project was going well and it was hoped it would be capped off with 500 people.

The memorial will be an interpretation of a tree combining a bronze trunk, copper branches and stainless steel cascading leaves with each element representing the different generations of migrants in the South West.
