The Australian Army Training Team Vietnam (AATTV) was the first Australian Army unit to serve in Vietnam (1962) and the last to leave (1972). AATTV consisted entirely of volunteers who advised, trained and commanded a variety of indigenous forces during the war in Vietnam. AATTV was the most highly decorated unit for its size in Australian history.

The AATTV "Memorial" at the Australian Army Land Warfare Centre, Canungra, Queensland, is not a memorial in the strict sense of the word, as it is built on army land. Technically, it is referred to as the "Home of the Australian Advisers".

The memorial area is built into the side of the hill and consists of a split-level section, holding the boulder and three other plaques, and additional plaques spread amongst the trees that occupy the area. At the entrance to the site, there is significant memorial signage.
