Cenotaph

Monument in MONA & Northern Hobart

Part of the broader Queen's Domain, the epic Cenotaph monument forms a visual finishing point if you look down the looong axis of Macquarie St from South Hobart. It's actually a war memorial: there used to be soccer pitches mowed into the grass around its base, but things are a bit more respectful these days. In 1841 the Queens Battery was built here, with guns trained towards any menace from the sea.
