Miners Rest Soldiers Memorial Relocation & Restoration
Miners Rest & District Lions Club

One hundred years on, in memory of those who gave their lives in World War 1, the Miners Rest community have come together to rededicate, restore and relocate a significant memorial – ‘the Miners Rest Soldiers Memorial’ – and create a new Avenue of Honour to reflect on events of the past and ensure that the community's fallen heroes are not forgotten.  This significant local landmark adds a new layer of history and heritage for the Miners Rest community.  It is a new meeting place and an extremely fitting commemoration in time for the centenary celebrations.
