It is a homage to the Korean War, which occurred from June 1950 to 1953, which resulted in the loss of almost half a million lives of South Korean soldiers. The memorial includes a Korean Wall featuring ten relief murals representing the various forces that fought in the war: air, navy, and army. It also pays tribute to those Missing in Action, Veterans, and Prisoners of War.

The Korean Veterans War Memorial Queensland commemorative mural also includes a primary figurehead representing Australia, Busan War grave, the Koreans’ struggle for freedom, Royal Australian Navy and Fleet Air Arm, Royal Australian Air Force, Royal Australian Regiment in the winter operations and the summer operations. The mural sculptures are nothing short of impressive, making them a must-visit for anyone who wants to learn about history.

The main memorial wall has a dedication plaque, while other plaques that flank the left and right side of the wall explain the contribution of the Australian forces during the Korean war in both Korean and English. The memorial wall is located in a remembrance garden featuring three flag poles representing the United Nations, Australia, and the Republic of Korea.

Meanwhile, the southern area of the memorial features a tribute to the Royal Australian Regiment’s land forces. It even includes the original battlefield stones that were presented in Gapyeong County. The northern end has a special remembrance area dedicated to Korean citizens and veterans.

The Korean Veterans War Memorial Queensland is located in the Cascade Gardens, Alexandra Headland.
