Overview

The National Workers Memorial honours Australians who have lost their lives to work-related accidents, incidents or disease and celebrates the vital contribution of Australian workers to building this nation.

The Workers' Glade design of the Memorial comprises eight stone columns positioned to reflect the outline of Australia.

Concentric ripples radiate from the columns to form a public plaza. This ripple effect acknowledges the profound impact work-related loss has on communities and families. The Memorial provides an important focal point for Workers' Memorial Day, recognised internationally on 28 April each year.
