Beenleigh

Built on sugar and Australia's oldest rum distillery, Beenleigh began as a town on the Logan River in its own right in the 1860s, but the population explosion in south-east Queensland in the 1980s and 90s saw it engulfed by Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

Despite the encroachment, Beenleigh retains much of its distinctive character and its position makes it a convenient base for travellers to make day excursions to Brisbane or to the Gold Coast's northern theme parks - Dreamworld, Movie World, Wet n' Wild and Le Mans Grand Prix.

The Historical Village is a time capsule which transports visitors to a rich, rollicking past, while the Logan River gives boating access to the Broadwater and Moreton Bay. Houseboats, in which you can explore the sheltered waters of the Broadwater from the Gold Coast to Brisbane, can be hired at Jacobs Well, regarded as the southern gateway to the Moreton Bay Marine Park.

Beenleigh: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Beenleigh War Memorial


Local war memorials hold a wealth of information that the National War Memorial's records cannot readily show: the impact WWI had on a community through enlistment, and death.

Beenleigh's war memorial was unveiled by Lieutenant Governor William Lennon on 21 November 1925. Its original location was at the road junction in the town centre.

This white sculpted slab, topped by the Australian Infantry Forces' 'Rising Sun' Badge provides a roll call, but look closely: it's not alphabetical. The slab, surrounded by a trough of water, bears the names of 61 soldiers, 10 are listed as killed ('K' stands beside their names); two died in service ('D' denotes their fate).

Nationally, Australia lost 60,000 from a population of about 4,000,000.

Buried where they fell (by decree of the British), Australia's outpouring of grief was demonstrated through a wave of memorials like this one.

A wall behind the slab carried plaques representing all the services and subsequent conflicts: WWII, Korea, Malaysia and Vietnam. The memorial was relocated to its present site in 1995.
