The Tarin Kowt Memorial is dedicated to the men and women of all nations who served at Tarin Kowt, Afghanistan. The memorial is a bronze replica of the wall at Tarin Kowt in Afghanistan that contained the names of 114 coalition soldiers killed in Uruzgan Province including 40 Australians killed in action.

The original Tarin Kowt memorial in Afghanistan was controversially broken up and buried before the departure of Australian soldiers last year under the instruction of Defence Chief General David Hurley because it was too big to return to Australia.
