The Memorial Walk seeks to highlight a century of service by Australian defence personnel, to acknowledge the sacrifice of all Australians who have been affected by war, and to pay homage to the more than 102,000 service men and women who have given their lives in conflict.
The Memorial Walk’s design is based on three pillars around the theme of “a Memorial for all, not a few”:
Remembrance, symbolised by the South Australian National War Memorial
Service, symbolised by the Torrens Parade Ground from where many have deployed
Loyalty, symbolised by Government House
