Coburg War MemorialPrint Page
The memorial commemorates those who have served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved.
In November 1923 the Coburg Branch of the Returned Sailors' and Soldiers' Imperial League of Australia successfully sought permission from the Coburg City Council to put a soldiers memorial in front of the new City Hall.
A cenotaph in the shape of a cairn formed from Harcourt granite was unveiled in 1924.
It has since been rededicated to the Second World War, Korea, Borneo, Malay, Vietnam and UN Peacekeeping missions
