The Australian Boer War Memorial
Anzac Parade Canberra
The National Boer War Memorial Association Inc was formed in 2007 under the leadership of Colonel John Haynes OAM (Ret'd) with the aim of constructing a memorial to commemorate the sacrifice of Australian Soldiers during the Second Anglo-Boer War in South Africa 1899-1902. This task was complete when the $4,000,000 memorial was opened by His Excellency the Governor General in May 2017. The national association in accord with its constitution was wound-up in 2018.
In the course of the project the national association was supported by state and territory associations. Some of those associations have chosen to continue the work of commemorating those who served in Australia's first war. This includes Boer War Day commemorations, research and publication of items on the war etc. Contact details for the committees can be found below:
