Bruce Rock Remembrance Park

The Bruce Rock Remembrance Park is located in our main street, Johnson Street Bruce Rock and opposite our Shire Administration Building.

Officially opened on the 6th November 2021, this park pays tribute to the men and women who served and continue to serve Australia in military conflicts and peacekeeping operations across the globe.

The Park features 11 specific memorials accompanied by information boards outlining the story and meaning behind each memorial.  There are also eight sculptures and artworks featured throughout the park, all interpretations of the theme ‘war and peace’, with the highlight being the replica peace window from the Bruce Rock St Peters Church. The Peace Window was the first stained glass window in Australia dedicated to Vietnam Veterans. The window was a project of the Bruce Rock Veterans Group, and was installed during the inaugural Back to the Bush Veterans Reunion in 2001.

All of this is set amongst gardens, walk paths, seating, and a gazebo in the centre for people to rest, reflect, and remember those we loved and those who paid the ultimate price to defend our freedom and our way of life.

The park is a peaceful and non-sectarian space, for all Australians.  Whether during the day or at night when the park is beautifully lit, we encourage locals and visitors to our town to visit the Bruce Rock Remembrance Park as a place of significance and reflection.
