State War Memorial ConcoursePrint Page Print this page


Photographs supplied by Graeme Saunders

The concourse in front of the State War Memorial commemorates the conflicts in which Western Australians have fallen. It contains the wall, the pool of reflection and the eternal flame. The walls feature the names of major battlefields.

The Flame of Remembrance within the Pool of Reflection burns continuously. It symbolises the promise of all Western Australians that "We will remember them".

The Concourse also features the names of Victoria and George Cross recipients.

The Concourse in front of the Memorial was designed by the Commissioner of Town Planning, Mr.D.L.Davidson and constructed in 1932 by levelling an area known as 'the Butts' and removing two Naval Guns sited nearby.
