More Info →Unveiling of War Memorial, Memorial Park

The obelisk at Fitzroy Park, as it was then called, was unveiled in this ceremony by Major-General Sir Howard Kipenberger. Later, in 1954, the park was dedicated and renamed Memorial Park. The obelisk, in a state of disrepair, was removed in 1983, and now only the gates into the park remain as the memorial.
