Felton East: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Harrow Gardens


Harrow Homestead is a private home and a grand residence, with the warmth and charm of yesteryear. Robert Ramsay, the English owner, had the impressive home constructed in the 1870s mainly of hoop pine and red cedar with large rooms and an arched hallway of polished pine and cedar panelling.

The home covers one hundred squares with wide verandas on three sides. Harrow is still very much a working property. Harrow Gardens are over 10 acres of rambling picturesque countryside featuring a 50 metre rose arbour, a lake with water lilies, extensive garden beds and a fish pond.

The stunning garden and gorgeous homestead are available for viewing during September and October however coaches are available via appointment at any time.

Greenmount War Memorial


The life-sized grey sandstone 'Digger' statue in the Darling Downs farming community of Greenmount, stands at ease on top of a square base, with crossed rifles and laurel wreaths carved on the sides. Warwick stonemason, WP Prout created the memorial. He built the base for the Allora memorial and a digger for the Killarney memorial which was destroyed in a cyclone in 1968. Greenmount is believed to be his only remaining intact 'Digger'.

The Governor Sir Matthew Nathan unveiled the statue on 11 December 1922, and spoke of the gratitude the Empire owed to people of a small Queensland village, where from a shire of 2,000 people, 184 joined up. All are listed on the memorial, including the 27 who died. It also commemorates the war service of Sister Elizabeth Kenny who later pioneered treatment for polio.

The memorial originally stood near the railway station, the heart of the township. It was relocated in 1986 to the Greenmount Bicentennial Memorial Park, adjoining the Returned Soldiers Hall, encircled with garden beds and set off by the rural backdrop of hills and valleys.

WWII servicemen's names have been added.

Victor Denton War Memorial


Queensland's first known WWI memorial doesn't stand in a public park or at a street intersection, it's in a small Darling Downs' cemetery. And unlike the others, it is in memory of one man.

Residents from the farming district of Nobby wanted to honour 20-year-old stockman Private Victor Denton who enlisted with the 2nd Light Horse Regiment just weeks after Australia announced it was at war in 1914. He died of battle wounds in June 1915 on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey and was buried there. This memorial stands as a sign of the spontaneous highly visible grief that gripped the community and the nation.

The memorial is located within the Denton family plot, alongside the grave of Victor's parents, in Nobby Cemetery.

Toowoomba monumental masons Bruce Brothers created the concrete and stone memorial, the broken column symbolising a life cut short. It was unveiled November 1915 during a recruitment march from Warwick to Brisbane, by a group labelled the 'Dungarees'. The march's participants drew large crowds in every town.

Sister Kenny Memorial, Nobby


Visit the memorial of Sister Elizabeth Kenny (born 20 September 1880, died 30 November 1952), who had a significant world-wide impact on the treatment of polio (Infantile Paralysis), one of the world`s most devastating diseases.

Sister Kenny lived in Nobby and received world recognition for her revolutionary treatment of polio victims in the early to mid twentieth century. She challenged the then current medical practice of immobilising muscles affected by polio and proved that exercising them aided in patient recovery.

This memorial chronicles her life and gives an account of the battles she had with the medical establishment of the day.

She is buried in the peaceful Nobby cemetery which overlooks the wide, rolling hills, and her life is also commemorated by a local memorial park.

Westbrook War Memorial


The WWI memorial in the small rural Darling Downs community of Westbrook is evidence of how pervasive the effect of war was on Queenslanders left behind. The popular 'Digger' statue with an honour roll was unveiled around June 1922 by federal parliamentarian LE Groom (his father William had served as the Darling Downs' first federal politician from 1901).

The memorial records that 47 local men went to war. About half of the families listed are represented by more than one member. Two families each saw four of their men go off to war. Westbrook community mourned the loss of 10 lives.

The 4.2 metre monument, a life-sized soldier statue standing on a pedestal, was designed and produced by Bruce Brothers of Toowoomba.

Once, the memorial stood in an open field. Today, development around it finds it adjacent to Westbrook's public hall.
