Australian Bali Memorial, Kings Park

Bali Memorial - Western Australia
Fraser Avenue, Kings Park, WA

 Location: 5

Australian Bali Memorial, Kings Park On 12 October 2002 terrorism claimed the lives of 202 people on the Indonesian island of Bali. Of these 88 were Australians including 16 Western Australians. Many more were injured.
We remember the lost, comfort the injured and honour those who assisted in this time of need.
This is a place of reflection for all those who have experienced loss or grief.
The main axis of the memorial aligns with the sunrise on the 12 October each year when dawn's light will pass through the memorial space to illuminate the commemorative plaque. A second axis provides a focused view of the Australian flag, Swan River and Darling Ranges
 
Australian Bali Memorial, Kings Park

In the shadow of our sorrow
we find a light.
With the dawn comes hope,
With the setting sun, time to heal

Vietnam Memorial, Kings Park Vietnam Memorial, Kings Park

Vietnam Memorial Pavilion
May Drive, Kings Park, WA

The building was built in 1899 and was formerly the Anglican Mortuary chapel at Karrakatta Cemetery. The pavilion was dismantled and relocated to King's Park in October 1988. On the rear wall engraved on black marble are the names of 61 West Australian servicemen who made the supreme sacrifice. The memorial is protected by iron gates, originally used at the entrance of the Western Australian Museum. Outside the building is a full size bronze statue depicting two soldiers, one from the Australian army and the other from the South Vietnamese army. Sculptor Khoat van Nguyen took twelve months to cast the statue. The statue stands on a polished granite plinth in front of the Vietnam memorial.
