The Royal Australian Regiment Memorial is located in Regiment Square, along George Street where it once met Wynyard Street. This war memorial was created by Dennis Adams OAM and dedicated in 1976 to commemorate the foundation of Australia's regular operational infantry regiment.

An infantryman standing in the pond in front represents the nine battalions that served in South East Asia. It originally remembered soldiers who fought in Korea, Malaysia, Vietnam, Malaya and Borneo. It has since had Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia and East Timor added.
