The Korean War Plaque is dedicated to the men and women of Ipswich who served in the Korean War.

The invasion of South Korea came as a surprise to the United Nations. The same day the war had officially begun (25 June 1950), the United Nations immediately drafted UNSC Resolution 82. The Liberal government of Australia, led by Prime Minister Robert Menzies, immediately responded to the UN resolution by offering military assistance. 17,000 Australians served in the Korean War between 1950 and 1953, and they suffered 339 dead, and 1200 wounded.
