Hobart, War Memorial

See this Virtual Tour in FullScreen High Definition mode.

The Hobart War Memorial (Cenotaph) was unveiled in 1925 and initially commemorated those Tasmanians who served in the Great War.

The site of the Cenotaph was selected for its prominence both to the city and the River Derwent. It is axially aligned with Macquarie Street, the city’s major civic thoroughfare. From the Cenotaph there are commanding views of the city, Mount Wellington and the Derwent Estuary.

In this pano we can see the Derwent River & the Tasman Bridge, across Hobart City surrounding suburbs. Unfortunately our view of Mt Wellington (where we started the Hobart Destination) is obscured by a rather large tree.
