The memorial commemorates all who have died from AIDS. The memorial includes a reflection pond and an area for contemplation and prayer.  It was funded by The City of Vincent, the Australian Council For Arts and local businesses.

AIDS (Acquired immune deficiency syndrome or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) is a disease caused by a virus called HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus). The illness alters the immune system, making people much more vulnerable to infections and diseases. This susceptibility worsens as the disease progresses.
