Australia's Memorial Walk

 

Memorial Walk Entry Image

The Australian Memorial Walk honours those who have served and supported the defence of Australia in peace or in war.  The paved pathway links five monuments erected to remember the major conflict periods in Australia’s history:

Colonial,
World War I,
World War II,
Post World War II, and
Peace Keeping.
(A special Gallipoli monument also stands along the pathway).

Funding for the construction commenced with a grant from the Department of Veterans’ Affairs with the majority of funds being donated from the public and organisations whose contributions are recognised with an engraved paver containing words of their choosing.

  Australia's Memorial Walk
This pathway was built along an old track that ran through the bush at North Head. Overlooking Sydney Harbour and at the Heads through which many servicemen and women sailed off to and returned from war. It is an idyllic site for a memorial that commemorates those who have served the Nation. The Monuments have been designed to provide the visitor with information on the period of service commemorated and allows a chance to rest, reflect and to remember.
     
Volunteers have undertaken the majority of the work and that work could not have been done without the generous support of the public and various organisations. More work is required and we continue to seek assistance from the public and organisations so that we can complete the work commenced in 1999. To date 4000 engraved pavers and 63 Centrepiece Pavers have been donated and space is filling quickly.
     

We would like to recognise all tax deductible donations through the placing of an inscribed paver in the walkway. This will become part of this historic walkway, ensuring future generations are forever reminded of those who supported the defence of this great land of ours. To help us maintain the walkway, suggested options for donations are listed on the donation form or via the website link.   Corporations, clubs, business and community groups are also encouraged to donate a Centrepiece paver inscribed with your logo and message. Individual pavers associated with a Centrepiece can be provided too.

The site is open to visitors seven days a week.

For further information regarding donating pavers to the Memorial Walk, please call 02 9824 9275 or email the Memorial Walk Officer.
