The Vietnam Memorial Pavilion commemorates those who died or were killed in the Vietnam War.

The building was built in 1899 and was formerly the Anglican Mortuary chapel at Karrakatta Cemetery. The pavilion was dismantled and relocated to King`s Park in October 1988. On the rear wall engraved on black marble are the names of 61 West Australian servicemen who lost their lives in the Vietnam War.  The memorial is protected by iron gates, originally used at the entrance of the Western Australian Museum.

Outside the building is a full size bronze statue depicting two soldiers, one from the Australian army and the other from the South Vietnamese army.
