A garden commemorates those who died in service or were killed in action in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved.

Over 3,000 of the Commonwealth's First World War dead are buried in Australia, most of them Australians. Many lie singly or in small groups in public cemeteries throughout the States and Territories, but over the years it has proved impossible to maintain some of these sites to an acceptable standard. To ensure the proper commemoration of those who died as a result of service in the First World War, and indeed subsequent campaigns, Gardens of Remembrance have been laid out in each of the six States.

The names of nearly 2,000 First World War casualties appear in these Gardens of Remembrance. The majority are still recorded by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission under the name of the cemetery in which they are actually buried, but a few, the location of whose graves are not known, are commemorated only in the Gardens of Remembrance.
