Description

The South Australian Garden of Remembrance is situated within the Centennial Park Cemetery in Adelaide. The original garden was constructed in the early 1960s. In the late 1980s it was decided to re-locate the garden and the present site was officially opened by the then Minister for Veterans' Affairs, the Hon. Ben Humphreys MP, on 18 March 1988.

The South Australian Garden of Remembrance has a plaque capacity of 30,000.

On the approach road to the garden and adjacent to the car park, there are replicas of an aeroplane propeller, a ship's wheel and a gun carriage wheel. These represent the three services — Air Force, Navy and Army.

Upon entering the garden through the entrance building, an opening plaque may be seen on the left hand wall. The entry building also houses the register books which list the wall and row number of each individual plaque.

Upon passing through the entry building, the reflection pool and a large dedication plaque can be seen. From here a pathway leads into the garden itself. Running through the centre of the pathway is a water course which extends the length of the garden. The water feature passes through a central gazebo and culminates in a fountain. On each side of the main walkway are the commemorative walls. The perimeter of the garden is flanked by trees.

In the centre of the garden is a large contemplation area where visitors can rest.
