Set back from the Bruce Highway in the Pine Rivers Shire, Kallangur is ideally placed for forays to Brisbane's northern beach resorts, Bribie Island, the Sunshine Coast and hinterland, and the big city.

To Kallangur's west lie Lakes Kurwongba and Samsonvale. Both are part of the fresh water reservoir network servicing Brisbane and its surrounding areas. Samsonvale offers limited recreational use for anglers, sailors, and kayakers. Twitchers are drawn to Samsonvale because the lake is a sanctuary for a wide variety of birds, especially waders.

Tourist leader in the Kallangur region is the Alma Park Zoo and Tropical Park Gardens. Paths through the 18ha zoological and botanical park wander through avenues of palms, ferns, subtropical trees and eucalypts. The animal enclosures featuring grizzly bears, Malayan sun bears, camels, deer, leopard, monkeys and peacocks are scattered through the trees and plants.

Kallangur: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Strathpine Memorial Honour Board

Rolls of honour like the Strathpine Honour Board give a ready insight into a locality's proud involvement in WWI.

The honour board, designed by leading Brisbane metal worker Ernest Gunderson in 1921, lists in alphabetical order 76 names of local men who served in WWI. Some lettering is now missing, in its original state it clearly recorded whether a person was killed in action, wounded, died of illness or returned home.

The honour board, commissioned by the Strathpine Patriotic League, is made of bronze on a marble background with timber edging. It features cavalrymen with the Queensland state emblem and soldiers; two enamelled flags- the Union Jack and Australian flag; the AIF emblem; a cannon and a replica of Britannia, with the words 'For king and country'.

Gunderson's honour boards are unique to Queensland. Few remain as intact as this example, now found in the old foyer of the Pine Rivers RSL, now within the grounds of North Leagues and Services Club.

Memorials to the district's servicemen in later conflicts are located nearby. The First World War Memorial Gates facing Anzac Avenue were relocated from the Lawnton showgrounds in 1985, and lead to a memorial garden containing two trophy guns.

Osprey House Environment Centre

Osprey House Environment Centre is nestled on the banks of the Pine River amidst the branching arms of the mangroves. It melds as a part of this sensitive wetland area with its natural timber design, sweeping verandas and meandering boardwalks inviting everyone to explore almost secret locations and learn about the local fauna and flora.

Cast your eyes across the river and wetlands from the viewing platforms and enjoy the ambience of the natural environment. So much wildlife inhabits this area that the you are spoiled for choice, whether it is birds on high, sleepy koalas in the gum trees, crabs in the mudflats or a dolphin playing in the river channel, each day offers unique surprises.

The centre includes a theatre, an interpretive centre with information about our natural environment and how we can all make a difference, 400 metres of boardwalks and a barbecue and picnic area.

Osprey House is situated close to where Ospreys regularly roost. These fish eating hawks may be seen at almost any time in daylight hours, soaring over the river, diving into the water to catch fish, or carrying fish back to their nest and feeding site atop a 21 metre raptor pole.

Anzac Memorial Avenue, Redcliffe

Queensland's first bitumen road connecting Brisbane to a seaside resort was 18 kilometres from Petrie to Redcliffe: it was also the state's longest WWI memorial avenue.

Anzac Memorial Avenue, now simply called Anzac Avenue, officially opened for traffic on 5 December 1925. It was built by returned servicemen as a re-employment project, starting in December 1922, and funded through public fundraising and government contributions.

Enhancing the streetscape, and in keeping with a growing tradition of living memorials, trees were planted along the motorway from February 1925, 2,000 trees in all. Not all survived. Weather and roadworks took their toll over the years and some were replaced.

Original plantings include the Cocos palms planted at Petrie by Governor Nathan in 1925, a Hoop Pine planted at the Humpybong Esplanade corner of the avenue by Governor-General Lord Stonehaven and a Fig tree at the roundabout terminating the avenue near Settlement Cove Lagoon.

Anzac Memorial Avenue was one of about 200 treed avenues planted in the wake of WWI across Australia.

The RACQ was a major supporter of its development, aligning with the newly-formed Main Roads Board. In this, the project uniquely blended WWI remembrance with the first car-driven tourism initiative in Queensland.
