Overview

The Vietnam Nurses Memorial located within the Morven Historical Museum complex, is open to visitors every day between 10am and 4pm.

More than half a century after the end of the Vietnam War, in which 52,000 Australian men served our nation, the Vietnam Nurses Memorial has been opened at the Morven Historical Museum in Morven, southwest Queensland. The permanent photographic exposition is the first Memorial in Australia dedicated solely to the 353 Australian women who nursed in Vietnam between 1964-1972.

The sixteen compelling images share stories of RAAF, Army and Civilian Surgical Team nurses, at work during the war. Some of the images in the were sourced from the Australian War Memorial, some from nurses and some were generously donated by the family of renowned War Photographer, the late Denis Stanley Gibbons.

These photographs capture glimpses of the Australian nurses’ experience in Vietnam, and ensure their stories have a permanent home in Australian history.
