The Remembrance Walk commemorates those who have served in conflicts in which Australia has been involved. 

The Walk consists of two groups of four brick pillars situated at either end of a concrete footpath. On top of each group grows a very thick vine, providing a 'roof' over the pillars.

At the front of the first group are brass plaques, one with 'Remembrance Walk', the other has the Ode. At the rear of the second group are brass plaques for National Servicemen and Ex-service women. Attached to the insides of the pillars are small brass plaques for individual returned service personnel who either died during thier service or who have passed away since returing home.
