Binjour

A small town off the Burnett Highway, Binjour lies in the heart of peanut country, about 20km north-west of Gaynda in the south-east Queensland hinterland.

A riverside nursery displays a wide range of roses and palms. Two nearby lookouts present sweeping views of the surrounding countryside.

A short drive up Branch Creek Road opens up the panorama of the Binjour Plateau to the east and the Gurgeena Plateau to the south.

East of the township is the single-lane Mt Debatable Bridge which commands stunning views of the region's lifeblood, the Burnett River. The creek beneath the bridge is a popular fishing haunt for local anglers.

An unusual monument is set on the roadside between Binjour and the Orange Festival town of Gayndah. The cairn marks the spot where Katherina Krieger, a German migrant servant on Mt Debatable Station was brutally murdered in 1859. Her killer was never identified.

Gayndah War Memorial


The north Burnett town of Gayndah is known for its oranges, and Queensland's most impressive outdoor honour board to war heroes.

Harold Wilson, from nearby Cooranga station, privately commissioned the memorial, presenting it to Rawbelle and Gayndah councils in 1921 in honour of the 270 local men who enlisted in WWI.

It's considered the finest work of Norwegian migrant and metal artisan Ernest Gunderson.

Gunderson combined Australian and British motifs, highlighting the imperial and national loyalties of the time: among them, the female figure of Britannia holding a shield of 'Liberty'; a laurel wreath encircling crossed flags and the words 'FOR KING AND COUNTRY'; mounted Light Horsemen; a British lion; kangaroos and an emu.

Although honour boards are a common form of war memorial, they are usually situated inside publicly accessible places such as the council halls. Not so Gayndah's: the WWI memorial stands in a square between the post office and library. Behind is a memorial garden including commemorative plaques to service personnel of WWII and conflicts up to Somalia.
