Address: North Terrace and Kintore Avenue, Adelaide, South Australia 5000, Australia

What people are saying:

Adelaide National War Memorial, Adelaide National War Memorial, Adelaide is located at the corner of North Terrace and Kintore Ave in Adelaide, between the Governor's House of South Australia and the State Library. The National War Memorial was built in 1931 to commemorate the South Australian soldiers who died in the First World War. She is a monument symbolizing world peace. In the First World War, almost no family in South Australia escaped the death or injury of a loved one. According to incomplete statistics, at that time, nearly 35,000 South Australians were drafted into the army (37.7% of the male population aged 18 to 44, of which 5511 died and 15,000 were injured). These people include Indigenous South Australians, who still volunteer for military service despite discrimination in their country of birth. Australians are still very patriotic. Such monuments can be seen in a local area, not to mention in state capitals. Monuments in small places are to commemorate those who died for the country in this area, which is quite practical.

    Great memorial

    I love the way the names of previous service people are contained inside the National War Memorial in North Terrace. Even my young grandson was facinated.

    The National War Memorial commemorates those who served in World War I. The interior lists the 5,000 young South Australians who made the ultimate sacrifice. I can still remember how impressed I was ...

    National War Memorial

    Visited on Friday 28th February. What a great memorial to those who gave their lives in World War 1 and 2. Well worth stopping to have a look and see if you have your family name listed there.

    Fitting tribute

    This memorial won’t take long to see, but worth it if you are passing by. A very fitting tribute to honour all the soldiers that lost their lives during the war.

    A must see while on North Terrace

    I was walking past on the way to the Botanic Gardens and ended up stopping for 3/4 of an hour going through the extensive role of fallen heroes to see if any of my family was on the wall. No surprises...
