A memorial to honour residents of Tinana who served in the Australian Imperial Force during World War I was the result of a fundraising campaign by a Soldier’s Memorial Committee, established in 1917. Unveiled in 1918, the memorial was originally located next to the Shire Hall but was later moved to its current location in Memorial Park. It depicts a broken column, representing life cut short, which is a less common memorial symbolism than the ‘digger’ statues dotted around Australia. Only the names of the local men who died in the war were originally inscribed on the memorial but eventually the decision was made to add the names of everyone who enlisted from the district. Maryborough Legacy has conducted Anzac Day dawn services at this memorial since 2009.
