About Cenotaph and Memorial Gates
The Maryborough Cenotaph was erected in 1922 with funds obtained by public subscription as a memorial to the fallen of the First World War. The memorial includes five Italian Carrara marble statues which portray the Army, Navy, Airforce and Nursing profession and Nike, the Winged Figure of Victory standing above them. The local Croydon Foundry cast the memorial gates and plaques.
The monument is located in Queens Park on the corner of Sussex and Bazaar Streets. Designated disabled parking is available in Sussex Street. The gates and cenotaph are adjacent to the road and easily visible from the footpath.
