Australian Light Horse Memorial Park
Victoria

This historic reserve of 140 hectares has been used as a military training camp since the Boer War in 1899.

It has seen the training of both Infantry Battalions, and Light Horse Regiments.

Units trained here include:
The Victorian Mounted Rifles, for the Boer War.

The 8th Light Horse Regiment became soldiers at Seymour before the disastrous Attack on “The Nek” at Gallipoli  - 7/8/1915

The 30th Infantry Battalion, trained at Seymour before sailing off for the Battle of Fromelles.

Some of these Troopers also rode into history at the Charge of Beersheba in 1917,

The 37th Infantry Battalion was formed at Seymour before it went into battle at Paschendaele.

In 1942 Seymour was the temporary home of the 41st US Division, the first US unit sent overseas by their country to fight the Japanese.

The very ground of the Seymour camp is irrevocably linked with the story of ANZAC soldier.

The park opened in 2001, and in 2009 this Gateway Information Pavillion was opened.
