Bushwalking NSW has introduced a new book called Splendour Rock. It was written by Keith
Maxwell who is an author and Bushwalking NSW’s Honorary Historian. The article reads-
Splendour Rock honours thirteen (13) bushwalkers from bushwalking clubs who died on active service during
WWII. While Splendour Rock has been described as ‘God’s Balcony’ with its views of the Southern Blue
Mountains it was not the first choice of a site for a memorial.
The book answers so many questions such as, who were the thirteen (13) young men, how did they die and what
did they contribute to bushwalking? How have they since been remembered? Who cast the Splendour Rock
plaque and when / how was it installed and then dedicated? Who were the bushwalkers who served and
returned? What is the story behind the other four memorials near Splendour Rock?
