Description

The Ingham Memorial Gardens (Botanical Gardens) are within walking distance of the town's main street, and are an ideal place to have a picnic lunch. The gardens have an extensive variety of north Queensland tropic vegetation and landscapes, which include a pond and water lillies. Within the pond you can often spy turtles and small fish swimming amongst the lillies.

There are numerous memorials in the gardens to such people as Keith Payne, who was born and educated in Ingham and was later invested with the Victoria Cross in April 1970 by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, for his repeated acts of exceptional personal bravery and unselfish conduct during the Vietnam War. Another memorial in the gardens is of the 12 people who died when a United States Air Force Liberator B-42 Bomber, names "Texas Terror", crashed on Mount Straloch, Hinchinbrook Island.
