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.

Oxley War Memorial


The soldier statue in Oxley is unmistakeably Australian, with his slouch hat and 'rising sun' hat badge, face slightly downturned as he stands facing west.

This statue, created by Ipswich monumental mason Frank Williams from Ipswich, and unveiled in 1920, found its final resting place in the 1980s, moved to make way for roadworks from its original siting on the major Brisbane southside arterial, Ipswich Road.

The soldier statue was a quaintly Queensland favourite style of WWI memorial, exhibiting common traits of the volunteer soldiers: youth, innocence, loyalty and courage among them.

Oxley's monument bears a marble plaque specifically naming the district's 15 dead, among the 60,000 mostly young Australian men to be buried where they fell in Europe, the Middle East and northern Africa and a valuable record of local involvement.

Frank Williams created many around southern Queensland, including in Esk and Boonah. He also produced the evocative Weeping Mother Memorial at Gatton.

Small marble plaques commemorating involvement in subsequent international conflicts have been added.

Oxley Memorial Park draws crowds for solemn remembrance on 25 April every year.
