Miners Tribute MonumentPrint Page Print this page

The Miners Tribute Monument was developed by four retired miners - former Miners Federation general vice-president Bob Graham, former federation general secretary Barry Swan, former safety inspector Victor Parkinson and ex-Coalcliff Coke Works manager Kevin Wiseman. The monument recognises the contribution of coal mining to the region since 1880.

The park, at the corner of Caldwell Ave and Foothills Rd, once functioned as a paddock for the horses used to pull coal skips into the nearby Corrimal Mine and is the site of the $100,000 stone memorial depicting significant mining events that have shaped the Illawarra.
