You can't miss this as it is in the centre reservation on Victoria St. It is fantastic and a great celebration of a local hero. The art work of the statue is fantastic in my view.

The work was created by New Zealand Defence Force artist Captain Matt Gauldie to celebrate the life and heroism of Sapper Horace Moore-Jones and to commemorate the centennial of the WW1 Gallipoli battle. It is a touching rendition of a hero.

This statue is beautifull made with Sapper Horace on the top and a copy of his hat and satchel on the side. It is an important reminder of our war heros and everyday people who all contributed to the country we now live in.
