The Contemplation Garden is where services and prayers were held in rememberence of the hundreds who never returned to home.

Here stands a plaque with the inscription of the words of a song by a Death March survivor:

I’m dreaming of Australia,
The land we left behind.
Dreaming of the loved ones
We could always bear in mind
Although its only fancy
Our hearts within us year.
But we’ll make up for lost moments
When to Australia we return.

There ’s be sailing on the harbour,
The Showboat our first choice.
Or maybe we’d be dancing
Listening to our sweetheart’s voice.
Although it’s only fancy
Our hearts within us yearn.
Gee we’ll make up for lost moments
When to Aussie we return.

- Nelson Short
