Churchill War Memorial Print Page Print this page

Churchill War Memorial commemorates those who have served in conflicts in which Australia has been involved. The memorial was erected in recognition of its fallen soldiers and the towns 50th anniversary. 

The memorial is in the form of an abstract Australia sculpture mounted on a concrete plinth. The sculpture was different from most war memorial sculptures because it explored the reasons why people go into service or war. One side of the sculpture is colourful and optimistic with themes of home, family, community and the future. But the line work also invites the viewer to see the back-side of the sculpture, which is black and foreboding.
