Gympie and Widgee War Memorial Gates


The British decreed that WWI soldiers of the Empire be buried where they fell, leading to a wave of memorials in Australia as communities, like those of Gympie and Widgee Shire, wrestled with their grief.

The Prince of Wales-later King Edward VIII-unveiled the Gympie war memorial gates in 1920 in tribute to 167 local men who died. Their names are inscribed, along with those of two locals who died in the Boer War, on large sculpted sandstone pillars facing the street and supporting the ironwork gates.

The gates were designed by a young Brisbane draftsman George Rae who won a design competition organised by the Queensland Institute of Architects on behalf of the Gympie and Widgee District Soldiers' Memorial Fund. AL Petrie and Son undertook the stonework. An unknown blacksmith produced the ironwork.

The gates cost ?800, raised through public subscription and input from the Gympie City Council.
The gates, on a laneway between a shop and a hotel, beckon entry to a memorial park beyond on a former saw mill site.

A second set of pillars mirroring the originals bear marble plaques with the leaded names of local men who served in WWII and Vietnam.

Gympie Memorial Park


A triangular-shaped park with lawns, well-tended garden beds and shady trees creates the perfect spot for a picnic in Gympie, it's also a place where WWI soldiers are remembered.

Gympie's Memorial Park was officially opened in April 1921, although the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII) visited eight months earlier when unveiling the Gympie and Widgee War Memorial Gates which lead into the green-space.

The local council used the expertise of Brisbane's Parks Superintendent Harry Moore, also known for his landscape design of Yeronga's Memorial Park, Newstead Park, and New Farm Park.

Local returned servicemen were employed for much of the ground works: gently curving gravelled pedestrian walkways radiating from a few entrance points and raised, dry-stone walled rockery beds with dramatic displays of flowering annuals, perennials and roses. Palms, pines, poinsettias and jacarandas were also planted for this living tribute to the 167 men who died at war.

While intended as a soldiers' memorial, others are remembered within the park. The 1920 bandstand honours the memory of a much-respected bandmaster and a sandstone monument is dedicated to James Nash, the man credited with starting the Gympie gold rush.

Glimpses of the park can be seen from Calton Hill.
