Monuments and Memorials

The War Memorial Fountain has been the place to commemorate ANZAC Day in Port Melbourne since it was erected by the citizens and Council of the former City of Port Melbourne. The gathering attracts more and more people each year.
Over time, the memorial has been weathered by the elements. The responsibility for the ongoing care and maintenance of these memorials has never been clearly assigned.
This week, the Council took the direction of committing funds into the future for its memorials across the city.
The Port Melbourne War Memorial is recommended to be one of the first monuments to be restored.
