Since its inception in 2004 people have been visiting this memorial to learn about its purpose and pay their respects to those it is honouring. The memorial aims to acknowledge the pain and suffering all Prisoners of War endured during captivity and to commemorate those left behind and the sacrifices made. If you’re in the area, a visit to this memorial is a must, it is one of the only memorials dedicated to Australian born and served prisoners of war. The memorial itself has thousands of names etched along a 130 metre long granite wall with a strong, simple landscape. Various events are held at the memorial throughout the year including a Wreath Laying Service every ANZAC Day from 9am.
