About the Veterans’ Memorial Trail
The Veterans’ Memorial Trail – which meanders its way through the Repat Health Precinct – acknowledges the important and meaningful connection the veteran community has with the site. Key features of the trail include:
- The Repat Museum, which contains a wealth of memorabilia relating to the hospital’s history; as well as both world wars and other major conflicts.
- The Repat Chapel opened in 1944 and commemorates those who have service in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved with.
- The School’s Patriotic Fund (SPF) Hall – opened in 1943 – demonstrates the contribution of civilians to the war effort and the support of veterans. It was built using funds raised by the SPF and the Red Cross, for the benefit of patients of the hospital.
