Description / Background

The Tumut Boer War Memorial is a marble column, topped with a marble finial or urn. The column stands on a marble pedestal, consisting of three levels. The whole memorial is supported by a granite base. 

The front of the pedestal is inscribed with a dedication to three Troopers who died while serving in the South African War (Boer War). Two additional names have been added to this list via a separate marble plaque, attached to the front of the base.

The monument was originally unveiled, with three names, on 7 February 1903. The two additional names were added in 2021–2022. 

The memorial is located in a garden overlooking the grounds of Richmond Park in Tumut, NSW.
