Vietnam Veterans Commemorative Walk
The Vietnam Veterans Commemorative Walk is the only one of its kind in Australia dedicated to all Vietnam Veterans. The walk has been created to symbolise the heroic 60,000 service men and women who devoted their energies to the service and protection of Australia.
Remembering the men and women who served
The names of each man and woman who served in the Vietnam War are scripted across the 106 glass panels. Vivid photographs capture a moment in the lives of all service men and women and provides a stirring photograph timeline. The photos reveal their experiences and battles along with their trials and tribulations as a poignant place in Australian history.
There is real life memorabilia featured heavily along the walk with a Centurion tank, a Huey helicopter, artillery pieces and an M1A1 APC. The surrounding landscape features spotted gums representing rubber trees and native grasses representing rice paddies. These two plants are synonymous with Vietnam. The ochre earth paths take you on a journey to where it all began. There are also places to just sit and peacefully reflect.
Located alongside the walk is both car and a caravan parking, with a dump point at the eastern end of the walk.
