Queensland Korean War Memorial

The Queensland Korean War Memorial is situated at Cascade Gardens in Broadbeach, City of Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.

The Korean War commenced in 25 June 1950 and ended with an armistice signed 27 July 1953. It was a war between South Korea, supported by the United Nations, and communist North Korea, supported by the People's Republic of China and with military material aid from the Soviet Union. The war was a result of the physical division of Korea at the conclusion of World War II. The Australian Army, Navy and Air Force fought as part of the United Nations force. There were more than 1,500 Australian casualties including 339 who were killed. However, the impact on the civilian population was greater with an estimated half million South Koreans killed, while the number of those killed in North Korea is not known.
