Description

Remembrance Place includes lawns, shrubs, walkways, trees, a memorial column, a memorial wall, a Lone Pine tree, the Sandakan Prisoner of War Memorial, a number of plaques and a peace tree.

It is marked by a sign which says 'Remembrance Place'. Anzac Day services and other commemorative events are held at the site.

In 1917, discussions took place in the Murwillumbah community and council concerning the naming of the railway bridge reserve in Murwillumbah. The word 'Anzac' was considered, but the site was ultimately named Newell Park to acknowledge the work of the Mayor, Alderman Newell. In time, this park was renamed Remembrance Place.
