I had nothing to do so I decided to do a bit of a cultural experience. It was really reasonably priced and I loved the exhibits. The only down side I would have to say was that it was pretty small. I could've walked around it all day long if there were more to see. There was also a questionable exhibit up on the top floor where it looked like grade school children gluing string and macaroni on paper.

I related to the effort of retelling one's history in the William Yang exhibition. I enjoyed the historical photographs of Dimbulah. Studying this intimate view of Cairns history made it all the more real to me.

52-54 The Esplanade, Cairns, QLD 4870

Since 1925

Memorial Gardens, Memorial Flame, Granite, Sandstone and Marble World War I, Memorial Clock Tower, Memorial Obelisk, Memorial Soldier Statue, Tourism, War Monuments, Memorial Parks, Statues, Collection, WWI Monument, Cultural & Social Associations

North-west of the monument is a memorial garden walkway aligned south-east to north-west - The WWI monument is square in plan and sits on a stepped concrete platform surrounded by eight concrete bollards and a tapered unpolished granite base

It is a place of cultural and historic significance for the Cairns community. The memorial is surmounted by a statue of a digger and records the names of 142 men and women from the region who served in World War I. Designed to incorporate a much-needed public clock, the clock faces are now painted replicas showing 4.28am - the time the ANZAC forces landed at Gallipoli on the ill-fated 25 April 1915.
