Paddington War Memorial


Location Victoria Barracks, Oxford Street, Paddington, Woollahra - New South Wales, Australia
Type memorial

The monument is in the form of a column of polished trachyte. It is on a massive block of trachyte, on the four sides of which the names of the men who fell are inscribed. The base is erected on a plinth, to which there are three steps. The column is surmounted by a doric capital and an acorn, the whole rising to a height of thirty feet. The column and capital weigh nearly two tons. The land, which is at the corner of Oxford and Newcombe Streets, was given by the trustees of our Church to the municipality for the purpose. The memorial is surrounded by an ornamental stone wall, through which there is a beautiful gate to give access to the church in lieu of a gate to be closed.
