Austinmer War Memorial commemorates those who served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved. The memorial was originally erected in memory of those who served in World War One. 

The unveiling ceremony of the Austinmer Soldiers' Memorial was carried out on Thursday of last week, under ideal weather conditions before a gathering of about 500 people. The beach presented a pleasing spectacle and flags were flown in abundance in honour of the occasion. Mr. George Cram, president of the Memorial Committee outlined the history of the memorial movement, which started 12 months ago. M. Cram then called upon Mrs. Cheadle to unveil the memorial, and , amidst profound silence the Union Jack fell from the memorial.
