Kulpi is a small rural community about an hour's drive though beautiful country north west from Toowoomba, via Oakey. Cattle and grain properties figure most prominently.

The town of Kulpi was part of a selection made by Fred Beckmann from the Rosalie Plains pastoral run. Mr Beckman built two establishments, the Pioneer Hotel and a store which formed the centre of the town. The settlement was originally known as Rosalie, however the name was soon changed to Kulpi, to avoid confusion with the Rosalie Plains Homestead, which was a small town in itself. The name Kulpi came from an aboriginal word meaning "charred logs".


Kulpi: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Goombungee War Memorial

In the Darling Downs farming community of Goombungee you'll find a rather elegant memorial in recognition of the local men lost in the battles of WWI.

Gallipoli survivor and hero of French battles Major General Sir Thomas Glasgow unveiled the Goombungee war memorial on 11 December 1920.

The people of Goombungee commissioned Toowoomba architect Harry Marks to design a classically-stylish sandstone pedestal with Doric columns, produced by RC Ziegler and Sons. A recessed square section bears leaded marble plates. The front plate carries 29 names - the town's men who died fighting in WWI. Atop the pedestal is a soldier statue, imported from Italy - an iconic representation of an Australian solder, which captures the qualities of loyalty, youth, innocence and bravery that grieving families wanted to remember.

The names of eight locals who died in WWII have been added.
