23 Avon St, Briagolong VIC 3860
Within ANZAC Park lies the Briagolong War Memorial. The monument commemorates those who served in World Wars One and Two.
Originally erected to commemorate those who served in World War One, two smaller obelisks were placed on either side at a later date to commemorate those who served and those who died in World War Two. A marble tablet was placed on ANZAC Day 1924 as a tribute to Mrs. Mills, who unveiled the monument, for her work with the soldiers during World War One. On the tablet are inscribed the words "Friend of the Soldiers."
The memorial was officially unveiled on the 29th January 1921 by Mrs Mills in front of a large gathering.
