This is a memorial to Australian soldiers – in all wars, campaigns and peace operations – and to the continuing tradition of service and excellence. Facing east, they look towards the rising sun. The figures stand on a raised podium paved in a radial pattern, which refers to the Army insignia.Seven cylindrical pillars recall the seven major conflicts in which the Australian Army has been involved in the 20th century. The pillars stand in water, reminding the visitor of the long sea journeys involved in all Australian campaigns. One of many memorials along ANZAC Parade, Canberra – Australia.
