Photographs supplied by Diane Watson

South West Rocks Cenotaph commemorates Australian servicemen and women who have served in conflicts in which Australia has been involved.  A Remembrance Wall was added to the Cenotaph as part of the Anzac Centenary Grants Program.

The memorial was originally erected in memory of those from the district who died in service or were killed in action during World War One. The names of the fallen of World War Two were added to the memorial at a later date.
