On the last Thursday in May, a Candlelight Tribute is held in the Veterans Cemetery to honour those who have served and continue to serve our country. This year, we will be honouring the 75th anniversary of D-Day. After a brief ceremony, Veterans, along with members of the public, will place candles at each grave. When all of the candles have been placed, there will be approximately 3000 candles representing the "light of freedom" we all enjoy today due to the sacrifices of our Veterans and serving members.

God's Acre Veterans Cemetery is located off Colville Road behind the Base Hospital inside Gorge Vale Golf Course.
