Tasmanian Seafarers` MemorialPrint Page
The Seafarers Memorial is a series of low brick walls built in the shape of a fish and surmounted by an anchor cross. On these walls are many plaques commemorating Tasmanians, both civilians and members of the armed services, who have lost their lives at sea, along with all seafarers – trawler and ship’s crews, yachtsmen and amateur fishermen, emigrants and convicts on early sailing ships - who have perished in Tasmanian waters.
