Normal lenswood   forest range

Details

Location Lobethal Road, Forest Range, Adelaide Hills - South Australia, Australia
Type Monuments
Description

Forest Range, approximately 600 metres north of Leslie Road on the eastern side between two extremely tall Pencil Pines.   An unusual shaped monument in the form of a white marble cupola shaped top on a three-tier base that in turn is supported by four white marble pillars surmounted on a concrete pedestal and slab. Between the pillars is a white marble effigy of a stylised cenotaph. On the pedestal face is a white marble panel.

The site is not readily noticeable as it is on the side of a hill and between two sharp left and right turns of the road, a small off-road siding is in front of the monument. Extreme care is to be taken when parking to ensure the vehicle is off the road as much as possible.

***Note: The memorial was restored between 2014 - 2015.***
