Hay Water Tower Art

Cnr Pine and Brunker St Hay NSW 2711

The Hay Water Tower art was envisaged as a lasting tribute to the many servicemen and women that left their small Riverina town on Hay Plains when the call to arms was made in World War II, and headed overseas combat to protect their loved ones and county.
Five veterans were selected to represent a broad selection of the servicemen and women of Hay, they now watch proudly overlooking the community they sort to protect.
