Grange

Originally, the Old English word "grange" was used to describe a small country house and its collection of farm buildings. It was fitting, then, that an early settler in this inner-western Brisbane region, T.K. Peate, should call his 2.2ha holding The Grange on account of the fact that his modest homestead adjoined a tannery and fellmongery.

The Grange of today, with its pleasant mix of parkland and lovely Federation homes - many of them being enthusiastically renovated - is a far cry from the suburb's early days when the lack of roads and rail transport meant that settlers had to literally hack their way through dense bush and scrub.

Some of the bush has been retained in reserves such as Grange Forest Park which has recently been lovingly restored and revegetated by the park management team.

Set in rolling hills and gullies through which Kedron Creek winds, the park"s additions include nesting boxes which are attracting a growing variety of birdlife to enrich the exercise regime of people keeping trim on the 2km walking trail and the bike track.

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.
