Eagle Farm

The Brisbane suburb of Eagle Farm is synonymous with horse racing due to the nearby location of the Eagle Farm and Doomben racetracks. During the winter racing season Eagle Farm comes alive with colourfully attired race-goers and jockeys along with frisky race horses and their nervous trainers.

The Royal Brisbane Golf Course is nestled on the banks of the Brisbane River on the southern side of Eagle Farm. The course is known as one of Australia's finest and has hosted several Australian Open Championships and Australian PGA Championships.

Visitors to Eagle Farm will find good accommodation in the neighbouring suburbs of Hamilton and Ascot. Two of Brisbane's most prestigious suburbs, Hamilton and Ascot are known for their grand hilltop mansions, bustling restaurant precincts and charming leafy tree scapes. Accommodation options include quality hotels, motels, units, bungalows, bed-and-breakfasts and villas.

Eagle Farm is situated at the northern end of the Gateway Bridge, approximately 20 minutes drive from the Brisbane city centre and only five minutes drive from the Brisbane Airport.

Pinkenba War Memorial


During WWI, the Pinkenba wharves on the Brisbane River were the point of embarkation for many Australian troops, including members of the Light Horse. Not far from where soldiers were waved off, a solid cairn memorial stands remembering those who did not return.

The Pinkenba monument unveiled by His Excellency the Governor Sir Hamilton Goold-Adams on 16 August 1919, records the names of 42 men who enlisted from the Toombul district, eight of whom died.

This memorial features the bronze work of skilled Norwegian migrant Ernest Gunderson, also known for his war memorial commissions in Gayndah and Dalby. A plinth of cast rusticated-finish concrete blocks supports an obelisk-like bronze pedestal with Doric columns at each corner. This section contains the honour roll. A small dome sits atop a square platform with an upright artillery shell and a laurel wreath, all in bronze, projecting from the dome.

Pinkenba's war memorial is not intact: miniature bronze mounted troopers and soldiers have long since disappeared.

A WWII memorial plaque, set on a basalt stone, sits nearby, recording local enlistments and the four who died.

Bulimba Memorial Park


Take a close look at the sprawling weeping figs on trendy Bulimba's Oxford Street: they are what's left of a living tribute to serviceman killed in action in WWI. The trees, planted between 1919 and 1923, flanked three sides of the memorial park, dedicated in November 1919. Name plaques were once attached.

A wrought iron arch bearing the words 'Memorial Park' presents a formal gateway to the park and a lectern-like concrete pillar bears a brass memorial plaque to the soldiers, sailors and nurses of Bulimba who enlisted.

Local fundraising also enabled the park's two-storeyed grandstand to be built, in 1923, as a further memorial. Its architect is thought to have been GMH Addison who designed the ferry terminal building at the end of Oxford Street. The 4.6ha park is a popular place for family outings, picnickers and sport year-round.
