Entrance to town


Snowtown is a small regional wheatbelt town located approximately 147 kilometres north of Adelaide.

Snowtown Soldiers Memorial Hall


Memorial Garden


Right in the town centre, on Fourth Street, is the Snowtown Soldiers Memorial Hall and next to the building is a small but significant Memorial Garden that commemorates those who have served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved.

Section commemorating Kokoda Track


The entrance to the garden is marked by a beautiful cross-shaped patch of grass. Beneath the flagpole is a memorial stone containing the Ode of Remembrance.

Bomb display


Bell on tower


An archway leads to a section dedicated to commemorating the Kokoda Track Campaign 1942.

Also displayed in the garden is a general-purpose bomb developed in the 1950s and gifted by the Royal Australian Airforce. A plaque next to it describes the specifications and functions of the bomb.

Tables and chairs in garden


Rotunda


Another feature in the garden is a bell hung on a tower. The bell stood at the Snowtown Methodist/UnitingChurch until its closure. It commemorates the congregation that worshipped between 1879 to 2015.

There are many tables and chairs to rest and reflect and also a lovely rotunda.

Wind farm


Water tower art


Not far from the park is the town's wind farm which is worth taking a look at. There are panels of information and a big turbine blade on display.

Down the road from the wind farm is the town's water tower art featuring their local heroes.
