Commemorating soldiers from Cairns who served in World War I, Cairns Cenotaph includes a memorial garden with 142 names of men and women. The monument was first unveiled in 1926 at another site, and then relocated in 1972. Notice how the painted replicas of the original clocks all show the same time--the time the ANZAC forces landed at Gallipoli in 1915.

Cairns Cenotaph Reviews
This is one area I would recommend visiting if you are walking around cairns. Really interesting and thought provoking area of Cairns. more »
This really isn’t an area I would have associated with being the front line of war but with so many reminders and their stories on show it makes you appreciate the role the area played more »
Well kept, appropriate, simple monument. Lots of shade.
As stoic as those who it stands for. Clean from grime too.
