Barellan Point: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Ebbw Vale Memorial Park


In the Ipswich suburb of Ebbw Vale, the memory of young men cut down in their prime in WWI lingers by a football field. The AL Petrie soldier statue memorial was originally unveiled near Ebbw Vale railway station on 14 May 1918. It was relocated in 1969 to Ebbw Vale Memorial Park, once known as the Whitwood grounds, named after a local colliery which had fielded two soccer teams since the 1890s.

Among the 22 names of those who enlisted in WWI are soccer team members William Jeffrey, Peter Jeffrey, H Mills and LW Breslin.

Unlike other states which favoured more architectural monuments, many Queensland communities chose the soldier statue for its traits of youth, masculinity, loyalty, bravery and innocence.

Soccer is still played on the grounds, along with cricket, softball and touch football and major community gatherings.

Colleges Crossing Recreation Reserve


A wonderful way to cool down and enjoy the great outdoors in Ipswich is at Colleges Crossing Recreation Reserve. The crossing is a low-lying bridge that crosses the Brisbane River in the suburb of Chuwar, and this long-time favourite with locals and visitors has all you need for a relaxing day out for all ages.

Although Colleges Crossing has been severely damaged by floods in recent years, each time it's bounced back bigger and better, meaning that many of the facilities are fairly new. This includes a nature-based children's playground covered by shade sails with equipment such as a fort, musical wall, spinning seats, tree log tunnel and frog sculptures. There's a lake for fishing and kayaking, and while it's advised not to take the full plunge for a swim, you can enjoy paddling in the shallows and skimming stones.

The large, grassed area has plenty of room for sports and there are also bike/scooter paths and walking tracks. After all that exertion, sit back and enjoy the treats served at the caf? with beautiful views of the river, or bring your own picnic or barbecue to enjoy at the sheltered tables.

Booval War Memorial


One of Australia's best known sculptors, Daphne Mayo, is believed to have created the Booval WWI memorial while apprenticed to Ipswich monumental mason Frank Williams. The memorial, a slightly smaller than life-sized soldier standing on a plinth, was unveiled on 15 February 1919 by Governor Sir Hamilton Goold-Adams.

The marble and granite memorial honours the 221 local men who served during WWI.

A committee representing the Ipswich suburbs of Booval, Silkstone, Newtown and Raceview had raised ?499 through entertainment and public subscriptions during the previous year. A voluntary 'working bee' had prepared the foundations.

War had delayed Daphne Mayo from taking up a travelling scholarship and she bided her time learning the art of carving with Williams. The Booval statue is attributed to her because of timing and the strong resemblance it bears to a model she made. Its style echoes Williams'.

Mayo's work includes the Brisbane City Hall tympanum and the Queensland Women's War Memorial in Brisbane's ANZAC Square.

Plaques honouring 16 local men who died in WWII as well as tributes to later conflicts have since been added.

Bob Gamble Park - River Heart Parklands


In recent years, Ipswich has really made the most of its river with fabulous new attractions such as Bob Gamble Park. The previously unused riverbank areas along the Bremer are now home to the River Heart Parklands, of which this was unveiled as Stage 2.

Bob Gamble Park, with its shade sails, has all you need for a cooling day out, with a zero-depth water park for the kids to splash around in and even ride their bikes through, and play equipment including a climbing spider. There's a 25-metre flying fox so youngsters can practise being Tarzan, and swings suitable for toddlers right up to long rope 'logs' for groups to ride. Add to that the thriving Discovery Forest with balance beams, forts, wooden totem poles and a bridge across a dry creek bed, and you won't be able to drag yourself or the kids away.
