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.
