Olympic Torch Monument
This granite monument commemorates the 1956 Olympic Torch Relay run between Cairns and Melbourne.
The Torch Relay was held between 9 November and 22 November 1956. As the host city for the beginning of the run, the 1956 Olympic Torchbearers Club Inc. (Cairns) was founded to create a club for the runners.
In addition to the monument there are Olympic mile markers placed along the promenade path.
