First and Second World War cemeteries

The debt of honour owed to those who gave their lives in the service of their country can never be repaid but we demonstrate our gratitude and honour the sacrifice in our cemeteries in Australia and overseas.

Papua New Guinea

During the 1940s, war dead buried throughout the New Guinea were relocated into the three major war cemeteries at Port Moresby (Bomana), Rabaul (Bita Paka) and Lae.


The camp at Malacca was built by the governments of Great Britain, Australia and New Zealand during 1957-1959 to house the 28th Commonwealth Infantry Brigade on its move from North Malaysia in 1959-1960.

Gardens of Remembrance

There are Gardens of Remembrance in all Australian capital cities and also in Townsville and Launceston.
