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.

Graceville Memorial Park


Graceville Memorial Park is better recognised for cricket ovals, complete with grandstand similar to the WWI memorial grandstand at Bulimba, yet it offers its own tributes to heroism, living and man-made.

Prior to the then Sherwood Shire's war memorial unveiling in November 1920, 52 bunya pines and cotton trees were planted along Plumridge and Appel streets, commemorating its war dead, 51 soldiers and one nurse. They were among 265 enlisted local men and seven nurses.

A 5.5 metre high cenotaph, created by AL Petrie with a copper scroll made by Norwegian craftsman Ernest Gunderson, was unveiled by Lieutenant Edwin Maurice Little of Corinda, a blind and maimed returned soldier. The polished grey granite column set on a light grey granite pedestal is crowned by a polished ball, etched with a map of Australia and the word 'ANZAC'.

An avenue of bauhinias, cabbage tree palms and Chinese elms was planted either side of a drive from Oxley Road leading to the memorial within the park reserve. A single line of figs and camphor laurels continued west from the memorial towards Appel Street.

The reserve has been officially known as Graceville Memorial Park since 1926. Plaques commemorating subsequent conflicts have been added.
