“Another memorial”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

The design owes more to military minds than to artistic sculptors but ir forms an integral part of the overall worthwhile Anzac parade visit.

“A tribute to the Korean War”
Reviewed 19 June 2011

The Australian National Korean War Memorial is a tribute to the Australian forces who fought in this was from 1950-1953. The Memorial includes a boulder from a Korean battlefield, figures depicting servicemen from the war, poles symbolising Australian who died in the war, and an obelisk remembering those who died with no known grave.
Anzac Parade, leading up to the Australian War Memorial, is lined with several Memorials to unique aspects of Australian War history. A walk along the Parade is a fitting way to show respects and to share a thought for those who gave so much for our safety and out way of life. While each memorial is small, the events and people they represent are immense. Highly recommended.
