Veterans Park
Canberra, ACT, Australia

Veterans Park in the Australian capital city of Canberra, at the corner of Northbourne Ave. and Bunda Street.  

This park includes a memorial topped with polished granite on which is engraved the insignia of the Special Air Services Regiment and the names and location of SAS personnel who lost their life while on active service. The memorial is backed by a commemorative Rose Garden that serves as a living tribute.
