“The ANZAC Centenary Memorial in Warragul will provide the community with a place to gather and reflect in personal commemoration into the future,” Baw Baw mayor Debbie Brown said in a media release.
Construction will include a memorial walk, which will commemorate the 73 soldiers from Baw Baw who have been killed in service.
The memorial will also serve as an educational resource for local students and as a focal point for future ANZAC commemorations.
The memorial was funded by the national ANZAC Centenary Grants Program and the Warragul RSL.
The official opening will be on 18 October.
