HMAS SYDNEY II MEMORIAL

 

This magnificent memorial has become the country’s premier site for honouring the 645 Australian sailors who were lost off the Western Australian coast during a World War II battle in November 1941.

RAN cruiser HMAS Sydney II and her men disappeared after a battle with German raider HSK Kormoran. While both ships were lost, many of the Kormoran crew survived the ordeal.

The beautifully designed memorial features a silver dome of 645 seagulls to represent each of the lost Sydney sailors. The wall of remembrance shows photographs of the ship and the names of the Sydney crew. To the north, a bronze statue of a woman gazes desperately out to sea as she awaits news of the ill-fated Sydney. Nearby is the stele – a single, dramatic shape representing the bow of the ship. The combination of these elements results in an extremely moving and fitting memorial.

Location: Mount Scott, Gummer Avenue, Geraldton, 6530
