Front Inscription

In memory

Australians have helped to fight for the freedom of many nations around the world for over a hundred years. The service and sacrifice by Australian men and women has resulted in an ethos of freedom in our own country that is the envy of the world.

This monument is in honor of their service, which has become our heritage.
