A quiet serene avenue of Illawarra Flame trees is a fitting tribute to the young brave Aussie men who recently lost their lives in Afghanistan. The symbolic sculptures as well as the stones brought back by their ‘mates’ are poignant reminders of how we must...More

A wonderful memorial in a beautiful spot on the edge of Lake Tinaroo. A must for anyone visiting the Atherton Tablelands. The village of Yungaburra is a very pretty spot.

Just a short drive from Yungaburra village, this serene and sincere memorial has been thoughtfully erected at the most beautiful spot overlooking Tinaroo. Lest we forget.

The best time to visit is during the week as on the weekends it can be a bit busy and noisy with the lake attraction. We loved our visit here which was very moving to just sit, reflect and remember our servicemen and dogs.
