Description / Background

This war memorial artwork is attached to an exterior wall at the entrance to the Waves Fitness and Aquatic Centre in Baulkham Hills. The artwork is a life-size steel silhouette of a soldier, accompanied by a plaque. This permanent two-metre installation is an interpretive tribute to the dedication and sacrifice of current and past service men and service women. In front of the wall is a garden planted with rosemary, which has particular significance for Australians on Anzac Days as it grew wild on the Gallipoli Peninsula. 

The Aquatic Centre replaced the previous pool complex that was known as the Baulkham Hills War Memorial Swimming Centre (opened 11 March 1967). Located inside the building are a series of plaques related to the new pool and the former memorial pool.
