The journey home
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
Lest We Forget
The Ode, mirrors the end of the journey for the fallen but, they are now at home in the land of their choice and amongst their mates, family and friends.
Their memory will live forever in the hearts and minds of us all.
As a National memorial, this sacred place gives visitors a chance to reflect on the contribution that Australians have made both in Afghanistan and in the many other conflicts throughout Australia's military history.
Like the flame trees planted along the The Avenue of Honour, this special place will continue to live, grow and change; a gathering place, preserving forever our pride in the past and our hope for the future.
