Western Australian Garden of RemembrancePrint Page Print this page

The Western Australian Garden of  Remembrance is situated adjacent to the Perth War Cemetery at Karrakatta Cemetery. From the main entrance, a central pathway leads to a gazebo where seats have been placed for visitors' comfort. A dedication plaque is located within the gazebo. Mounted below that plaque is a reopening plaque placed in 1997. From the gazebo a feature wall may be seen upon which a plaque has been placed with the inscription 'Their Name Liveth For Evermore'. Internal paths lead to all sections of the garden, including another feature wall displaying the three service emblems.

The Garden was officially opened on 23 October 1966 in the  presence of His Excellency the Governor  of West Australia, Major General Sir  Douglas Kendrew, KCMG, CB, CBE, DSO and  the Minister of the Interior, the Hon. J.D.  Anthony, MP.

In 1997 the Garden was extended and  extensively renovated. It was re-opened  by the Attorney-General, the Hon Daryl Williams, AM QC MP on 14 November 1997.  The Garden has a plaque capacity of 25,000.
