Search New South Wales Garden of Remembrance:

The New South Wales Garden of Remembrance which is a cenotaph and contain no graves or ashes was constructed adjacent to the Sydney War Cemetery, within the Rookwood Necropolis, in the early 1960s. The Garden was expanded several times and in the late 1980s was completely redeveloped. The new Garden was opened by the then Minister for Veterans' Affairs, the Hon Ben Humphreys, MP, on 18 October 1991. The NSW Garden of Remembrance has a plaque capacity of 100,000 and has recently undergone structural works to provide more commemorative wall space. The central archway of the main entrance building houses the register books which list the wall and panel number of each individual plaque. The New South Wales Garden of Remembrance is maintained by the Office of Australian War Graves. For post war commemorations contact (02) 6289 6517 or WarGraves@dva.gov.au
