Tickera Memorial Park contains a granite monument with a marble statue featuring the names of local soldiers who fell for their country in war.
Approval for the establishment of a soldiers' memorial in Tickera was granted by the District Council of Ninnes in October 1919 and 8 acres of parkland were fenced for the purpose. Under the auspices of the Tickera Soldiers' Memorial Fund, which commenced in March 1920, moves were made to develop the park. The War Memorial, similar to that at Alford, was unveiled by the Town Clerk of Wallaroo on 1 October 1921.



The Yorke Peninsula is the traditional lands of the Narungga (Nharangga) people, who have lived on, and cared for, this country since the beginning of time. We work, live and travel on Nharannga Banggara [Country], and we take time away from those pursuits to acknowledge and pay our deep respects to the Nharangga Elders of the past and present. 

Today, it is essential that we continue to care for and protect our spectacular natural environment. Tread lightly and leave no trace. Learn more about responsible and respectful travel on Yorke Peninsula.
