Botany, war memorial

The Botany War Memorial is located in Boralee Park, on the corner of Bay Street and Daniel Street, in the eastern suburb of Botany. It was unveiled in 1923 and features a luted granite column surmounted by a sphere and crown, resting on a sandstone and granite base on steps. Today is ANZAC Day, which commemorates the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War in 1915.
