Join us at week's close to honour those who have served and sacrificed so that we may enjoy our lives of relative peace, comfort and freedom.

Each Sunday we pause to remember a different event from Australia's military history. We remember the men and women who took part in those events, and the lives lost or forever changed.

This week's service commemorates the start of Australia's involvement in rebuilding Cambodia. On 8 October 1993, Operation Banner commenced as part of the United Nations Military Liaison Team (UNMLT). Australian personnel played a key role in supporting the newly elected Cambodian democracy and coordinating international assistance efforts. We honour their contribution to peace and stability in Cambodia.

Shrine Representative:

  • Shrine Governor.
