Rocky Hill War Memorial and Museum


About Rocky Hill War Memorial and Museum

Rocky Hill War Memorial opened in 1925 as a lasting tribute to the men and women of Goulburn who served during World War 1.

Sponsored by the community and designed by renowned local architects, E C Manfred and Sons, the memorial tower is constructed of concrete and clad in local stones – some of which was carried to the site by local residents and returned servicemen as part of ANZAC Day commemorations in 1923.

Located on a prominent rocky outcrop the memorial is a must to visit with the viewing platform at the top of the tower providing a spectacular view over the city and surrounding areas. The tower is a well-known and iconic representation of Goulburn and a significant landmark to the local community.

A small museum opened in the basement of the tower in 1927 to house a substantial collection of war trophies allocated to Goulburn in 1920, 1922 and 1926. The collection has grown significantly over the years and moved to the re-purposed onsite caretakers cottage in 1999. A new state of the art museum building was due to open in March 2020, doubling the exhibition space and providing a large open area for programs and events. The opening has been postponed due to Covid-19 restrictions.
