The Honourable Robert Hawke, former Prime Minister of Australia, and Mr Yannis Haralambopoulos, former Deputy Prime Minister of Greece, dedicated this memorial in 1988. It was erected to commemorate those who died in the Greek campaign of World War II, especially during the battle for Crete. It recognizes the armed forces as well as the civilians who risked their lives helping Australian, and other allied soldiers to safety. Also remembered are those who died on Greek soil during World War I. The memorial is a peaceful haven, designed as a small amphitheater set in a grove of olive and cypress trees.
