ANZAC Memorial Wall Print Page Print this page


Photographs supplied by Diane Watson
The ANZAC Memorial Wall commemorates those from the Shire of Diamantina who served Australia, either at the battle front or at home, during World War One and later conflicts. 

The memorial consists of an honour roll with individual plaques as well as a plaque detailing the history of the World War One horses, the Walers.  A centenary of ANZAC plaque is located nearby.  A similar memorial is located at Bedourie. 

The Centenary of Anzac 2014 to 2018 was an important period of national commemoration for Australia. Marking 100 years since our involvement in World War I, the Anzac Centenary was a time to honour the service and sacrifice of our original ANZACs, and the generations of Australian servicemen and women who have defended our values and freedoms, in wars, conflicts and peace operations throughout a Century of Service.
