Mrs. Watson's Memorial
Mrs. Watson's Memorial Review
Erected in the late 19th century, the monument commemorates the survivor of an Aboriginal attack on Lizard Island in 1881. Mrs. Watson—along with her infant son and a Chinese servant—escaped to a nearby island, only to die of thirst. It's thought that the hapless woman, the wife of a local fisherman, was attacked because the couple's homestead had been erected, unwittingly, on sacred land. Mary Watson's monument, beautifully sculpted in the Victorian Gothic style, was funded by the public.
