The Victory Memorial Gardens located in the rural town of Wagga Wagga in southern New South Wales. The gardens were formally established in 1928 near the town centre along the banks of the Murrumbidgee River as a tribute to the sacrifice made by those from the local community during the Great War. The gardens encompassed the already established Cenotaph from 1922 and the Victory Arch of 1927 (seen above).  The Arch was later extended to include a circular wall on which are listed service personal who served during WWII. Within the Victory Memorial Gardens are a number of other memorials commemorating different events.
