Gracemere War Memorial

Description

Obelisk cenotaph form memorial, constructed of Ulam marble. The obelisk is resting on several pedestals and a carved wreath and stylised Rising Sun surrounds the war dead on the front panel. There are three other panel Honour Rolls. A dedication panel is found at the base of the memorial. White tiles were added to improve the base of the memorial in 1993. Later conflict panels and tiles were also added to recognise the service of all Australians, especially from the Gracemere District who served in the Armed Forces Post-1945.

There are also memorial trees and plaques that surround the memorial.
