Boonah War Memorial and Memorial Park


Soldier statues proliferated after WWI but few were unveiled by royalty: Boonah's war memorial was one of them. The statue, which stands in a low brick-walled memorial park on the corner of Park and Yeates streets, was unveiled in July 1920 by the Prince of Wales. He later became King Edward VIII.

Just two months earlier, a foundation stone had been laid in the park by General Sir W Birdwood.

Public subscription raised the ?600 required for the memorial, designed and executed by Ipswich masonry firm, F Williams and Company. It honours 374 Boonah district men who enlisted in WWI, including three sons from nearby Coochin Coochin Station where the Prince of Wales was staying. The district lost 69 men at war.

The public memorial park in which the statue, flanked by two war trophies stands, was dedicated on ANZAC Day 1922 by war hero and politician Captain Arnold Weinholt.

Commence by heading towards Goomburra on the unsealed road to the Dalrymple Circuit and camp at Spicers Gap or Goomburra. Keep your camera poised for the seldom seen Albert's lyrebird, the endangered eastern bristlebird and the vulnerable black-breasted button-quail.

Plan lunch at Cunningham's Gap picnic area where the highway's cross, and explore the Rainforest Circuit with ancient volcanic views over the Fassifern Valley and Lake Moogerah - popular with boaties and anglers.

Enjoy the sights of Queen Mary Falls at the lookout giving views of water plummeting 40 metres below into Spring Creek. Challenge yourself on a full day hike to summit Mount Cordeaux or Mount Mitchell and explore the Pioneer Graves Track or the 300 metre return to Governors Chair lookout, the large rock on the edge of the cliff face.

Maroon State School War Memorial


Ipswich stonemason Frank Williams' sandstone soldier statue dominates the Maroon school yard in the farming district south of Boonah as a constant reminder of this community's wartime loss.

In 1919, a local committee set out to raise money for a memorial and honour stone to express gratitude to the community's men who had served in WWI: 42 men from 35 families. 17 had not returned, a mortality rate twice the national average of 20 per cent.

On 21 May 1920, General Sir William Birdwood unveiled the Maroon War Memorial, a soldier standing on top of a tall column which in turn rests on a substantial pedestal and plinth. He also presented returned servicemen with Maroon Patriotic Committee medals.

An honour board recognising the district's 42 men and women who served in WWII has since been added.

The Maroon War Memorial remains the focus of annual Anzac Day commemorations with locals volunteering for its upkeep and maintenance.
