Artist's Description

The Mandurah War Memorial is located on the northern point of the Western Foreshore in a prominent waterfront location that enjoys high visibility from both land and water. Completed in April 2005, the Memorial has become a consecrated place of reflection and rest, to be used both as a formal platform for ceremonies – and as a device of journey, exploration, and experience for the individual. It was designed and created by architects Hames Sharley and honours the enormous contribution of servicemen and women who served in conflicts in which Australia was involved. The inspiration for the design was based on a poem “AT THE GOING DOWN OF THE SUN” which ends:“I am the Unknown Soldier. I died for a cause I held just in the service of my land… that you and yours may say in freedom… I am proud to be an Australian.”

Camera used: Pentax K30
