The memorial was dedicated at the Anzac Sunday service on 21 April 2013. A flagpole stands behind the 'Stone of Remembrance', a large white painted rock with the words 'Lest we forget' painted on its surface in black. The memorial has numerous bronze plaques in proximity.
There were 340 Australians killed during the Korean War, and a plaque lists 43 veterans who are classified as ‘Missing in action’ (MIA) presumed dead and remain on the battle fields of Korea due to North Korea isolation policy.
This war memorial replaces the Baulkham Hills Shire Memorial previously at Arthur Whitling Park, corner Old Northern Road and McMullen Avenue, Castle Hill NSW. It was removed to allow for the construction of the Castle Hill, North West metro station. The archived information for the old memorial can be found here.
More information on the Korean War can be found on the Australian War Memorial website.
