Funding for Goulburn to help preserve our wartime heritage

Thursday, 27 January 2022

Goulburn Mulwaree Council will receive $1,440 to restore sections of the Belmore Park Honour Roll through the latest round of the Australian Government’s Saluting Their Service program.

The Saluting Their Service program ensures Australia’s wartime history is preserved and those who have served during wars, conflicts and peace operations are appropriately remembered. 

Federal Member for Hume Angus Taylor said the commemorative project from Council would continue the tradition of remembrance, and he looks forward to seeing the finished work.

“I am so proud of the history of service in Goulburn, and this project is a wonderful way for us to commemorate and reflect on the sacrifice of all those who have served from our community,” Mr Taylor said.

The funding is part of the Australian Government’s $32 million investment in Veterans’ Affairs grant programs this year.

The next round of the Saluting Their Service program is open, and applications can be submitted until 8 February 2022.

To submit your application or find further details, please go to the Saluting Their Service page on the Grants Hub or visit the DVA website.
