The War Memorial now stands where the original water tanks once stood in the centre of town. This memorial was shipped from Perth and erected in 1923 to serve as a reminder of the tragic loss of life in the Great War. Plaques representing the losses of life in the Second World War, Korean and Vietnam Wars were added later.
Wall of Remembrance
A HMAS Sydney II memorial cairn was erected on Quobba Station where a memorial service is held every November 19th. Quobba Station, Red Bluff beach and 17 mile beach was the landing sites of two of the HSK Kormoran life boats with survivors on board.
HMAS Sydney II Memorial
On the 75th Anniversary of the sinking of the HMAS Sydney II and in memory of the 645 sailors that lost their lives on that fateful day, a befitting memorial has been erected on the Fascine with a ‘Walk of Remberance” along the Fascine Wall. The plaques of all sailors lost have been placed along the wall overlooking the ocean. There is also a memorial to the lost sailors of the HSK Kormoran and this has also been placed on the Fascine Wall.
