Clarence Valley Vietnam Veterans War Memorial is dedicated to those who paid the supreme sacrifice in the service of their country in Vietnam and those who succumbed to illness on their return. At the rear of the memorial there are eight brass plaques containing the names of the 520 servicemen and women who died during the war in addition to the five civilians who also died during the conflict.

Note:-
The end-date of Australia's involvement in the Vietnam War has officially been amended to 29 April 1975 to reflect Australia’s further involvement in the war during the fall of Saigon in 1975.  The Department of Veterans Affairs and the Australian War Memorial, in Canberra now recognise this new date.
