Looking for Vietnam Veterans

The Gippsland Memorial Park is recording all the Vietnam Veterans buried within the grounds. If you have a family member who enlisted into the Vietnam War, please contact the cemetery office with their name for our records.

War Memorial and words in memory of those who served

Department of Veteran Affairs 

In 2023, the Australian Government will mark the 50th anniversary of the end of Australia’s involvement in the Vietnam War with a national service at the Australian Vietnam Forces National Memorial in Canberra on 18 August 2023 from 10:00am.

The service and other supporting activities have been developed in conjunction with a national stakeholder consultative group, including Vietnam veterans and representatives of the wider veteran community.

Throughout the year, Australians will be encouraged to honour and remember the service of some 60,000 Australian men and women who served in the Vietnam War and their families. Tragically, 523 Australians lost their lives in the war, and over 3,000 were wounded.
