Warwick War Memorial and Gates


A Celtic cross tops the impressive 10.7 metre high sandstone and granite monument serving as a grave for 122 Warwick men who died in WWI.

Governor Sir Matthew Nathan unveiled the memorial 5 December 1923, before a crowd of 3,000.

Sir Matthew expressed pleasure at the involvement of a returned soldier, Roy Campbell, in the memorial's design although he may have collaborated with his father Hugh.

The memorial, which cost ?1445, was crafted by Ipswich mason Frank Williams.

Its classic elegance incorporates Corinthian columns of polish granite and a sandstone shaft with carved wreath and the words 'The Honoured Dead'. Names are recorded on marble plates.

Memorial gates, also designed by the Campbells and installed a year later, pay tribute to the 377 Warwick district men who served and returned.

The Warwick war memorial is found in the south-east corner of Leslie Park, named after a pioneering family of the district.

Boer War Memorial and Park, Allora


A pretty park of some historical significance, the first of three soldier statues erected in Queensland after the Boer War (1899-1902) is found in Allora's War Memorial Park in Warwick Street.

Colonel (later Sir) Harry Chauvel unveiled the soldier statue in 1904, honouring the four local men who died, and 35 others who served in the southern African conflict. The slightly smaller than life-size soldier statue, by sculptor William P Macintosh, is unusual in its details: the soldier's mouth is open and he stands alone, without the traditional tree stump for support.

Subsequent additions commemorate those who fought and died in World War I and World War II.

General JC Robertson unveiled Allora's WWI memorial - a sandstone and marble obelisk, small field guns carved into the pedestal - in November, 1921.

A second sandstone and marble obelisk, simpler in design, stands at the park's rear, serving as a WWII memorial.
