Memorials in Oz

I recently returned from a trip "Down Under" and took a number of photos of memorials in and around the above cities. They include official War Memorials, Cenotaphs etc, as well as private memorial plaques in churches.

If any Pals are interested I'll post on the site.

Shame we didn't get to catch up with you whilst you were in Perth :)

Did you take any photographs in Perth churches at all?

Bright Blessings

What did you think of the "whispering wall" in Kings Park, Perth with the eternal flame? I visited for thr first time recently since it was built having lived and worked away for some years. A beautiful spot and the view !!! :D

Kim, Daveo, Sandra. Thanks for the replies. I will start to put the images on here after I've manipulated them for size etc at the weekend.

In Perth I took photographs in the Anglican Cathedral & King's Park. I then went on to Adelaide, which is full of memorials plus Port Adelaide & Glenelg. A trip through the outback followed - which is fairly short on memorials but Coober Pedy has a war memorial!! Alice Springs has a nice obelisk and the RSL has an honour board. Melbourne has the Remembrance shrine, which is probably very well known, but also St Paul's Cathedral. There's a very impressive cenotaph with names in Williamstown. I'll put them all on and you can all see if there's anything of interest.

As promised, pics from Oz. First series from Perth, mostly private memorials from the Anglican Cathedral. I've had to reduce the file sizes so if anyone would like full definition copies PM me.
