This granite tablet marks the location where Lord Kitchener reviewed troops from Lytton during his tour of Australia in 1910 and was originally unveiled by the Governor, Sir John Goodwin on 7 December 1929. Kitchener had been held in high esteem by the public and the construction of a memorial to his visit illustrates early twentieth century Australians' deeply held affection for the British Empire and their pride in Australia's place within it. Following development of the site in 1963, the cairn was demolished but the memorial stone was recovered in 1992 and established in a new position 60 metres northwest of the original. This memorial and Kitchener Park, located to the southwest on the other side of the railway line, are the only Queensland public memorials to Kitchener's visit to Australia.
