Cairns commemorate the work of railway workers.

Drillham originated as a railway service town in 1878. A railway weir provided water for steam locomotives and a camp was established while a bridge was built over the river. Reminders of the hardships endured by the railway workers can be seen today in the form of roadside cairns commemorating their efforts.
