Army Training Team Vietnam Memorial GrovePrint Page Print this page

A grove which includes 998 trees commemorates those who served with AATV ( Army Training Team Vietnam) in South Vietnam during the period 1962 - 1972.

It had its origins in 1992/93 when a rain forest hardwood timber grove was named the "AATTV Memorial Grove", in honour of the AATTV by the Commandant of the Land Warfare Centre. The Home of the Australian Advisers overlooks the timber grove and was officially unveiled and dedicated in 1996.

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.
