Australian Corps Memorial Park, Le Hamel, France

The Memorial in the Park at Le Hamel needed to be rebuilt as it had deteriorated to a point where it drew adverse criticism from the public and no longer appropriately honoured the service and sacrifice of those it commemorated.

After an extensive consultation period, reconstruction commenced in March 2008 and was completed by August.

The Park was rededicated by the Governor-General on Saturday, 8 November 2008 in the presence of the Minister, the Australian Ambassador to France, the Secretary of DVA, senior French Government officials, local and regional authority representatives and members of the Public.

Please note: A number of visitors' cars have been reported broken into and belongings removed.

When visiting the memorial please remember to secure your vehicle and ensure that no valuables are left in your car.
