Merchant Navy Memorial

The Merchant Navy Memorial is located at the water's end of the Memorial Walk, off the end of Charles Street. 

The Merchant Navy Memorial recognises the crews of Australia's commercial shipping vessels who served during WWII. The Merchant Navy carried much-needed supplies and was just as likely to be attacked as the Royal Australian Navy ships.
