COROMANDEL VALLEY

WAR MEMORIAL GARDENS

  These war memorial gardens were
established by the City of Onkaparinga
in 2000 and officially opened by
Mayor Ray Gilbert
on the 28th of May 2000.


In 2000 the monument was restored and moved 100 metres north of its original position.


It is a memorial to the thirty –two soldiers who fought in World War 1, and particularly to the nine who died. So strong was the communal sense of loss, grief and pride at that time, that the fifty households of the Valley contributed £268, an average of £5 each – more than the average wage for two weeks – in order to build it.


These gardens have been developed in recognition of the significant contribution of those who fought and served in World War 1 and subsequent Wars.
