A landmark that celebrates bravery
The Karl Schmidt Memorial at Elliot’s Beach is an architectural landmark commemorating a Dutch sailor, who drowned in 1930, trying to save the life of a girl.
The structure, which was built using bricks, lacks a stone foundation.
The uneven base and the sea water have caused damage to the memorial over the years.
There is an enclosure around the memorial, and the cracks in the structure have been mended. However, there is still a lot of graffiti on the white surface, and people regularly climb the structure to take selfies.
