Coolangatta War Memorial Queen Elizabeth Park


This monument was erected in 1926 and is an obelisk topped with a funeral shroud, symbolizing those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Crossed rifles on the front suggest the soldier are now at peace.

The Memorial stands alone in the park with a commanding view of both the main road and ocean. There are no nearby structures to distract from the monument.


The monument is used today for Anzac commemoration, as the park's central location makes a natural meeting place for ceremonies.

The Byron Bay Honor Roll was used for the data analysis.
