The Centenary Project is underway

4 October 2016

Work has begun  and hoardings now surround the construction site. Sixty odd graphic panels have been placed on the fencing to keep the community informed during construction and show some of the Memorial’s treasures spanning a century of NSW’s military service.

1942 — Battle of KOEPANG. Japanese troops landed in Timor and met spirited resistance from the Australian troops.

The initial attack on Timor cost 84 Australian lives
