National Memorial to the Australian Army


by Bidgee

"Honouring Armed Forces"

National Memorial to the Australian Army, which was unveiled by the Honorable Bill Hayden (former Governor General of Australia) in 1989, was erected in recognition of the contribution the men and women of the armed forces have made to this nation. It honors the courage of generations of Australians who have served in the army. Two imposing statues of "diggers" (Australian soldiers), depicting the camaraderie and mate-ship of the soldiers, are surrounded by seven pillars, which represent the seven major conflicts in which the Australian army has been involved. The memorial is set atop a jagged-edged dais surrounded by water, which symbolizes the sea and difficult terrain.
