Narangba

About 30km north of Brisbane, just off the Bruce Highway on the way to Caboolture, and about 8km west of Deception Bay, Narangba is close to two big lakes - Samsonvale and Kurwongba. The Alma Park Zoo - one of the prettiest little zoos in Australia - is just a short drive away, too. At Deception Bay, a few minutes away by car, there are some lovely beaches, and great fishing in the estuary or out in the bay itself. Moreton Island National Park is a few kilometres offshore and ferry services run from Scarborough at the southern end of the bay. Narangaba is just a few kilometres south of Caboolture, administrative centre of the shire of the same name. From Caboolture it is a short, 30-minute drive to the bridge connecting Bribie Island to the mainland. Bribie is separated from the mainland by one of the great aquatic playgrounds and fishing paradise of the Pumicestone Passage whose protected waters offer sanctuary to the protected dugong and many species of birds. The Pumicestone National Park conserves the waterway and much of Bribie Island's natural rainforest and scenic bushland.

Narangba: 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.
