Bajool-Ulam War Memorial

Location of Bajool-Ulam War Memorial

32km south of Rockhampton (Bruce Hwy)
Bajool-Ulam QLD 4699

The original Digger monument was erected in 1921 by the Ulam Memorial Committee, with the rough marble having been shipped to Italy to be sculptured. The digger has since been replaced by an obelisk. Local coarse sparkling Ulam marble was used in several Queensland war memorials.

The memorial has three panels and includes Rolls of Honour to the four dead and 24 who served, including a number of sets of related individuals.
