Australian Hellenic MemorialPrint Page
The Australian Hellenic Foundation was instrumental in the conception of and fund-raising for this memorial, which honours the Australian and Greek men and women who served in the Greek campaign, and the strong relationship forged between Australia and Greece during World War Two.
The memorial comprises 12 three-metre-high granite columns; these create a rectangular space laid with basalt pavers with polished curved lines. This area houses a cast-bronze urn and a limestone and oikos on a bluestone base.
