Chris, the memorial is a small pyramid with a flat top. On one side is a plaque commemorating Cook's naming of Hervey Bay. The memorial was erected by, and stands outside the Returned Services League Club. The actual address is 11 Torquay Road, Pialba, Hervey Bay. You can see it on Google Earth's streetview, next to the WWII field gun.
