ANZAC Centenary Park includes a wide concrete path, leading to a concrete oval containing a marble digger statue. The statue is set on a stone plinth, which includes a bronze plaque that includes statistics on Australia’s, and Redlands’, casualties during the First World War. The statue, which faces northwest, is that of a First World War digger in the ‘reverse arms’ position, which signifies a soldier’s deep respect for the fallen in Australia’s battles and wars. Behind the statue is a memorial wall, with raised lettering indicating battles in which Australian forces have participated. There are also three flagpoles between the wall and the statue.
