Maroubra RSL Vietnam War MemorialPrint Page Print this page

The monument commemorates those who have served in the Vietnam War.

Australia's military involvement in the Vietnam War began with the arrival of the Australian Army Training Team Vietnam (AATTV) in South Vietnam during July and August 1962.  Australia's participation in the war was formally declared at an end when the Governor-General issued a proclamation on 11 January 1973.

However, the end-date of Australia's involvement in the Vietnam War has officially been amended to 29 April 1975 to reflect Australia’s further involvement in the war during the fall of Saigon in 1975.  The Department of Veterans Affairs and the Australian War Memorial, in Canberra now recognise this new date.

Note: In November 2015, there were plans to put the site out to tender with a view to redevelopment and the site was sold and the Sports Club closed on the 25th April 2016.
