The memorial at Medowie.

MEDOWIE is a small community but one that is stepped in tradition when it comes to honouring its service men and women.

As home to many who currently serve at the Williamtown RAAF Base, Medowie’s Remembrance Day service is one where the whole of the community comes together.
