Description

Augusta is located 311 km south of Perth, the last town before Cape Leeuwin where the Southern and Indian Oceans meet.

The Memorial is located York & Osnaburg Streets, Memorial Park, Augusta WA.

The Memorial stands on a hill overlooking the Blackwood River between Augusta & Cape Leeuwin. It is a white marble oblisk on a base of West Australian granite and concrete. The significance of the Memorial is because it is in the extreme South-West corner of the Continent - a part of Australia which provided many Australian soldiers with their last glimpse of their native country.

The approach path has 78 bronze plaques for those who served in World War Two. Surrounding the memorial are plinths which list the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved.
