City of Mandurah War MemorialPrint Page
A monument commemorates those who have served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved.
The striking Mandurah War Memorial design was created by award winning architects Hames Sharley and honours the enormous contribution of servicemen and women who served in conflicts in which Australia was involved.
The Mandurah War Memorial design uses large white pillars to commemorate the loss of life, the wounded and those that returned - and their ultimate quest for peace. The east/west orientation of the works is designed to capture the axis of the sun on ANZAC Day.
At dawn on ANZAC Day the rising sun lights up the columns and create a temporary guiding light to the highest peak of the memorial, which will be further enhanced by the line of dark shadows cast along the axis.
