The NSW War Memorials Register is undergoing essential maintenance. Submissions are not being accepted at this time. Read more here. We apologise for the inconvenience.
This war memorial contains several elements. The focal point is a semi-circular grouping of four black stone pillars, with the insignias of the Royal Australian Navy, Australian Army, Royal Australian Air Force, and Merchant Navy attached.
The pillars sit on a teardrop-shaped base, which is a Maori symbol for 'Rebirth'. They are surrounded by a semi-circular wall with plaques listing the names and dates of all conflicts and peacekeeping missions in which Australia has been involved. To the left of the wall is a large bushrock with a plaque bearing a dedication from the RSL.
The memorial was dedicated on 1 November 2014. It is located at the western end of River Street, on the southern bank of the Nambucca River overlooking the river and Macksville bridge.
