The Vietnam Veterans Commemorative Walk was opened in March 2013. The Wall includes both the names of all Australian veterans who served in the Vietnam War and a photographic timeline.
The Commemorative Walk is not to memorialise those who served in Vietnam and/or those who paid the ultimate price, but to commemorate the service all who played their part in what turned out to be a tumultuous part of Australia's history. Plaques in the interpretive centre give an accurate history of the times prior to military commitment, the period of involvement and the aftermath.
The Walk meanders amidst native trees and grasses that resemble rubber trees and rice paddies. Plants synonymous with Vietnam. 106 panels of DigiGlass with the name of every Serviceman and Servicewoman who served in their various capacities. The names are separated by the Service in alphabetical order. Behind the names is the picture story of the Vietnam conflict and the wall is lite of an evening.
A recreation of the Luscombe bowl, red brick pavers, a black granite memorial Cairn, a Centurion Tank, a replica of the Long Tan Cross, a Huey helicopter and other artillery pieces complete the walk.
The wall is lit nightly.
