Description

Belmont War Memorial commemorates the fallen from the district.
Belmont War Memorial has high aesthetic values as a simple memorial located in an attractive park setting.

Tall stone obelisk on a square three-tiered base. The memorial is located on a raised circular platform within a rose garden with a flagpole on either side. The memorial was originally located on Great Eastern Highway and was moved to its current location in 1972 due to the widening of Great Eastern Highway.

The Belmont War Memorial was erected in 1923 by the people of Belmont in honour of the 34 soldiers from the district who fell in the Great War. The memorial was unveiled by the Governor, Sir Francis Newdegate. (West Australian, 24 September 1923)
Also present at the official unveiling, were Lady Newdegate, D. McLoughlin (president of the Belmont Road Board), Archbishop Riley, Gen. Sir Talbot Hobbs, Col. Pope.

The memorial was originally erected in a triangular reserve opposite Belmont Primary School, at a cost of £552. General Hobbs noted that the people of Belmont had set an example to the more wealthy suburbs of Perth. He also regretted that the city did not yet possess a State Memorial (Kings Park memorial was not erected until 1929). After the Last Post had been sounded, a number of wreaths were placed on the memorial.

In 1972, as a consequence of widening Great Eastern Highway, the memorial was relocated to Faulkner Civic Precinct.

Upgrades to the base and surrounds of the war memorial were undertaken prior to the ANZAC Centenary (2015). The upgrades included rose gardens, new memorial plaques and improved disability access.
