Picture 246This is a statue of Edward ‘Weary’ Dunlop, who was an Australian surgeon who was renowned for his leadership whilst being held prisoner by the Japanese during World War II. The statue is located in the Kings Domain Gardens, alongside St Kilda Road. (Not in the Royal Botanic Gardens as many people believe.) The statue was created in 1995 by Peter Corlett.
