Description :

The Duncan Memorial, located at the southern end of the University footbridge beside the River Torrens. The inscription on the memorial reads,

In memory of Dr George Duncan, whose death by drowning on 10th May, 1972, near here, at the hands of persons unconvicted, precipitated homosexual law reform in South Australia, making it the first state in Australia in 1975 to decriminalise homosexual relations between consenting adults. We will remember him.
