Wyaralong: Where To Go / Sightseeing

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.

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.
