Palma Rosa


The elaborate Palma Rosa rose up among the slab huts and shanties of a fast growing city of new and freed settlers in 1887. Originally built as a grand private home by notable Italian architect, Andrea Stombuco, Palma Rosa has seen many interesting inhabitants during its 120 years. It now serves as the Headquarters to Queensland Branch of The English Speaking Union who welcomes the public for tours, hosts events and provides travellers' accommodation.

Windsor War Memorial Park


A red light from a bronze lantern beams out at night from a Helidon brown sandstone cenotaph, standing on a high point of a northern thoroughfare leading towards Brisbane's Central Business District.

The octagonal pavilion with its four arches and domed roof was unveiled on ANZAC Day 1925 on behalf of the citizens of Windsor to commemorate local residents who had served in WWI.

This dominating cenotaph, designed by honorary architects FR Hall and WA Devereux and constructed by Peter Frew, is rare among Queensland's WWI monuments because of its octagonal design. Yeronga's Memorial is closest in style in Brisbane.

External corner panels are inscribed with names of some 120 local war dead. Red and blue concrete borders a leaded marble commemorative plaque on the pavilion's floor. Moulded laurel wreath ornamentation encircle the ceiling.

The Windsor War Memorial stands on the site of the original school situated between Lutwyche Road and Roblane Street, Windsor-opposite the former Windsor Town Council Chambers.

Windsor and District Historical Society Incorporated


The Old Windsor Council Chambers, built from locally quarried porphyry in 1897, maintains displays of articles and equipment used in the locality, as well as a small library of local books and photography. The Society is housed in unique heritage listed stone local government building beside the Windsor Quarry Park and opposite the Windsor War Memorial Park.

This local gem is responsible for the district Anzac Day Service (held at 9:00am) each year, as well as an annual history walk on the last Sunday in July.

Newstead Park Memorials


Newstead Park, on Brisbane River, conceals many stories-including its part in WWI. A memorial trophy cannon unveiled near the rotunda in 1922 caused controversy: an alderman suggested it was an 'emblem of evil' and that the money would be better spent supporting returned servicemen. The cannon was removed in the 1950s, donated to the 9th Battalion-and made way for the Australian American Memorial, one of only two such memorials in Australia, attesting to Brisbane's importance in the Allied victory in the South-West Pacific.

The grounds of Newstead House, Brisbane's oldest surviving residence, also hosted fundraising efforts during WWI. A dolls' carnival in 1917 was a special drawcard, raising money to send 'comforts' to the troops in the trenches, specifically the 25th Battalion.

Newstead House was occupied by the US Army from 1942 through to the end of WWII. The grounds reflect the American occupation and hold memorials to the Australian Navy Corvettes, submariners and Vietnam veterans.

Newstead House


Historic Newstead House is Brisbane's best-known heritage site open for public inspection, offering a number of unique experiences befitting Brisbane's oldest domestic dwelling. The building, dating from 1846, has evolved from a simple Colonial Georgian cottage into the quintessential homestead of today - a style of architecture that draws as its inspiration the bungalow found on the Indian sub-continent.
