Public Memorials

The Royal Western Australian Historical Society has played a significant role in preserving and commemorating Western Australia’s history and heritage.

Among its contributions are the numerous public memorials erected throughout the state, honoring individuals, events, and institutions that have played an important role in shaping Western Australia’s past.

Public Memorials

Over the years, the Society, frequently in partnership with local government authorities, has erected memorials across the State to provide information and recognition of many facets of Western Australian history of special interest for tourists.  Information on these memorials is accessible at Collections: Research Western Australian History.

Should you locate a public memorial that you believe offers memory and meaning of iconic individuals and events relevant to Western Australia the Society would welcome receiving as much information as possible about it. This can be provided by completing and submitting the email Public Memorial Information Form.  The form can also be used to correct or add to information on a memorial that is already recorded in the Public Memorials collection.
