The 19th Infantry Battalion and Armoured Regiment memorial park is situated behind the Information Centre in Victoria Park, Cashmere, Christchurch. There is a memorial rock with a plaque on it.  Above that there is a plain table with a plaque listing the battles in which the battalion saw action and naming the fallen. The whole area is bounded by four blocks of 19 trees from each area where the battalion fought – Greece, Crete, North Africa and Italy – and four blocks of native trees which signify those who returned but have since died.

Every Anzac Day there is a commemoration service at 8am and a following camp breakfast (sausage sizzle & cup of tea) for everyone attending. The Rotary Club of Christchurch Sunrise has been organising and supporting the camp breakfast for the guardians of the 19th Battalion Memorial for over 15 years.
