The Garden of Reflection was created to honour and commemorate those
SAS personnel who have paid the ultimate price for their service
and the sacrifice of their families they left behind.
The SAS Memorial, simply known as 'The Rock',
is the centrepiece of the Garden.
The names inscribed upon 'The Rock' are those Australian SAS personnel who have died whilst on active service or during training.
The bronze sculptures guarding the entrance to the Garden are in the military funeral drill position 'Rest On Your Arms Reversed'.
This bronze sculpture relates to the SAS Company and the early years of SASR to approximately the mid-1970s.
This bronze sculpture relates to SASR from the early 1990s and the period during which the Austeyr assault rifle was used for drill parades.
Individual granite plinths are allocated to the SAS personnel whose names are inscribed on 'The Rock'. The granite comes from an area where components of the SAS Selection training have been conducted.
Stainless steel discs individually inscribed commemorate those SAS personnel who have died when serving with the unit but not while on duty.
A quiet place to sit and reflect on the cost of SAS service.
