Yeronga Memorial Park


Yeronga Memorial Park is a living reminder of the impact WWI had on a community.

Of the 559 residents who enlisted from (then) Stephens Shire, 97 names appear on marble tablets in the centre of a domed pavilion, designed by returned serviceman Sergeant Henry Priest (9th Battalion) and fine-tuned by architect George Trotter.

A similar number of trees were planted between 1917 and 1919. Each tree represented a local life lost. Today, the mature weeping figs of Honour Avenue, one of Australia's earliest such boulevards, create a cathedral-like avenue accessible to walkers and cyclists.

A slight detour along a palm-lined footpath takes visitors to the stone memorial built in 1921. Memorial gates were erected that year too at either end of the avenue. The dedication on the southern inner pier of the Ipswich Road Gates honours the women workers of the Stephens Shire.

Until WWI, Queensland had few public memorials. The outpouring of grief at the loss of 60,000 Australian lives, buried in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, changed townscapes across the country.

Recent work has seen the inclusion of memorials to later conflicts and the replacement of lost plaques by the trees, bearing soldiers' names.

Toowong Memorial Park


Toowong Memorial Park, home to Western Districts Rugby Football Club, can be packed with spectators in season, unaware of historic tributes just metres from the footy oval, towards Brisbane River.

Parliamentarian EM Macartney officially opened Toowong Memorial Park on 7 September 1918 in honour of the 101 locals who enlisted in WWI. Decorative wrought iron memorial gates were erected to mark the park's official opening.

Beyond, on the summit of a ridge, is the 12 metre high Toowong Soldiers' Memorial, unveiled by Governor Sir Matthew Nathan on 2 July 1922. A fluted column with a Queensland marble drinking fountain at its base, surrounded by carved wreaths and swags, this memorial's base provides a valuable roll call of local involvement, naming all who enlisted on three marble slabs.

A commemorative avenue of palms was planted in 1918. A large section was relocated in 1993 to run parallel to Sylvan Road from the car park, curving gently towards the memorial gates.

Dawn ANZAC Day services proceed along this avenue, gathering at a more recent RSL memorial cairn, inside the gates.
