Memorial Cross

After the Shrine of Remembrance, Mount Macedon Memorial Cross is considered to be the most significant war memorial in Victoria. Located on the summit of the mountain within the War Memorial Cross Reserve, this imposing structure stands 21 metres high and commemorates all those who served in wars and conflicts.

Originally built in 1935 by local resident, William Cameron, the Mount Macedon Memorial Cross is a truly remarkable and awe-inspiring monument.

William Cameron

William Cameron, a prominent and wealthy local resident, during the great depression, wanted to do his part for his country and for his community. Building the Memorial Cross.

Mr.Cameron knew that not only would this new monument be a great way to honour our Australian heros, it also provided local jobs. His generousity also extended to the gardens surrounding the Cross and he even donated the road to the summit (which is named Cameron Drive.)

In 2014, Luke Chapman had this painting (below) commissioned to honour this man, it is hanging in the Tea Rooms for the public to view.
