Wilston is a highly attractive precinct in Brisbane. Its stunning blend of old and new architecture - from workers' cottages to modern architect-designed homes - paints a superb picture. Its inner city location and breathtaking views of the city from more elevated streets of Wilston Hill means property here is highly sought after.

Just as popular is the burgeoning hub of alfresco dining, cafes and delicatessens. Wilston's main street, Kedron Brook Road, has excellent shopping by day, and the village practically buzzes with activity at night under the lights.

Local stores in the area are supplemented by larger centres at Lutwyche Shopping Centre and slightly further away at Stafford and Brookside. Wilston is easy to get to, with regular trains and buses from the city.

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.
