Australia Remembers  
1945 - 1995

This stone stands in tribute to all Ausralian men and women whose sacrifices contributed to peace at the end on the 1939 - 45 war.

We honour the memory of those who gave their lives in defence of our country.  We remember those whose lives were burdened by battle scars.  We sympatise with families broken and wouned by death and injury on the battlefield.

We renew our welcome to all new Australians who have sought refuge in our land from war and oppression.

We acknowledge our debt to the rural community, to those in industry and to all who loyally served on the home front.

God bless them all

Lest We Forget
