War Memorial & Seats, Trinity Beach

Two memorial seats facing the Coral Sea on Vasey Esplanade in Trinity Beach, have First World War significance. The seats were dedicated to local efforts during the First World War: one to the nurses who cared for the soldiers under challenging conditions, and one to the supportive efforts of the many volunteers at home. The seats were funded by the people of Cairns and each have an etched panel incorporating a dedication and a photo; one showing nurses caring for a soldier and the other an ambulance vehicle which saw service on the Western Front. Associated features, which relate to Second World War Coast watch activities, include a flagpole and plaque. The dedication ceremony took place on Saturday 18 April 2015. The work was carried out by the Trinity Beach Lions Club with a Queensland ANZAC Centenary Community Grant.

These memorial seats also form part of the Cairns Region ANZAC Trail. To see more information about this trail, see the below links:
