Laravale: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Beaudesert Historical Museum


The Beaudesert Historical Museum is one of the largest country town museums in Queensland, with over 10,000 artefacts covering the Scenic Rim region's industrial and lifestyle heritage. From the humble Mother Potts clothes iron, to the large red Dennis fire engine, there is something for everyone.

A favourite photographic opportunity for visitors to Beaudesert Historical Museum is the Milbanks Pioneer Cottage. This cottage was originally built in 1875 by Patrick Milbanks on his Kerry property, out of local hand hewn timbers, slats and shingle roof. It is furnished with a four-poster bed, large cedar sideboard and numerous articles that portray the life of the early pioneers. It was donated to the museum by Patrick Milbanks' grandchildren and relocated to its present site in 1979.

Dedicated to the Fire Services by the Governor of Queensland, Sir Leslie Wilson, in 1936 it was considered to be the Rolls Royce of fire equipment. The Dennis Fire Engine was used in South Brisbane for twenty years before working for ten years in Beaudesert. It was donated to the museum by the local brigade after it survived a flood in 1965.

Beaudesert War Memorial


More than 60,000 Australians died during World War I (WWI), and the memorials erected during and after the conflict were an expression of national grief, serving as substitute graves for those buried overseas. The Beaudesert War Memorial is one of the more elaborate monuments in Queensland, with a soldier statue in an unusually relaxed stance.

Located at an intersection at the centre of town, the Beaudesert War Memorial's foundation stone was laid by Mayoress HL McDonald in December 1919. The completed work was unveiled by Governor Sir Matthew Nathan on 28 September 1921.

The sandstone memorial is set on a triangular site, and includes a soldier statue in front of an obelisk, plus two reclining lions nearby. The life-sized soldier stands completely at ease, complete with slung rifle, unbuttoned collar and a pipe.

The number of enlistments from the district was above the state and national average. The names of 524 local men who enlisted, including 91 who died, are recorded on marble plates on the memorial.

Additional plates have been added to the memorial, bearing the names of those who died in World War II. Plaques have also been added to commemorate the Malayan, Korean, Borneo and Vietnam conflicts.
