Description / Background

The memorial wall was established as a part of the Ingleburn Military Heritage Precinct in 2000. It is a sloping, semi-circular construction, which surrounds a central paved area. A flagpole is positioned in the centre of the paving. A plinth at its base bears the dedication plaque for the wall. 

Attached to the wall are a number of black marble plaques. These include a history plaque, which provides a brief overview of the Ingleburn Military Camp and multiple plaques that list all of the units and sections who had been based at the camp from 1939 until 2000, when the camp was closed.

Ingleburn Memorial Wall

The Ingleburn Memorial Wall commemorates the men and women of the Australian Army who trained, served or assembled at the Ingleburn Military Camp.

The Camp was established in 1939 and trained personnel for European and Pacific service during World War Two. Units destined for service in Korea, Malaya and Vietnam also assembled and trained here.

The Camp was a training centre for National Service and Headquarters for the Army Reserve between 1951 and 1973. For many Australian men and women, Ingleburn was a place of transformation from civilian to soldier.

The facing plinths commemorate the men and women of the units and sections of the Australian Army stationed at Ingleburn from 1939 until 2000.

This Memorial Wall represents the service and self-sacrifice made by the men and women associated with the Camp.
