War memorial stands out
Feb 2021
Ulverstone is on the north coast of Tasmania, on the River Leven, facing Bass Strait. It is best known for its Shrine of Remembrance, which looks like a rocket ship with a clock on top. The three legs are intended to represent the three services. The clock was built by post-war migrants and commissioned in 1953. The citizens of Ulverstone are dismayed if the time is wrong and the chimes don't ring.

The original war memorial was built in 1924 and aptly unveiled on Anzac Day that year. In 1953 immigrants built the impressive clocktower over the memorial making it something to behold. The clocktower was to remember those who fought in WW2.

It's centrally placed in Ulverstone and it's a landmark that you can't look past. There is small grassed area opposite it which I believe would allow the locals somewhere to come together on Remembrance days.

This structure is really impressive. When I first visited Tasmania about 25 years ago this is something that I remembered about Ulverstone... the structure, not necessarily the history... 'Lest we forget' indeed.

This is definitely worth taking a few moments to look at... it's not like you can miss it... it's structurally imposing where it is. :)
