Maclagan

Maclagan at the foothills of the Bunya Mountains, and close neighbour Quinalow, perched on Myall Creek are friendly towns.

Be sure to explore the network of beautiful bushwalking tracks nearby in the Bunya Mountains National Park. If you're not too easily spooked, venture through the old Muntapa Rail Tunnel and duck to avoid the colony of bats that call it home. You may even be lucky enough to see an echidna along the walk to the tunnel.

Maclagan: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Cooyar War Memorial


In the Darling Downs township of Cooyar, two WWI memorials stand side-by-side ensuring this community's loyalty to the Empire is never forgotten.

State parliamentarian Arthur Edward Moore MLA (who would become premier a few years later) unveiled the Cooyar War Memorial on 14 July, 1923.

A marble soldier statue standing on a pedestal honours the 25 local men who died in WWI. The adjacent stone plinth reminiscent of a gravestone serves as a roll call of all 110 men who enlisted; their names inscribed on a leaded marble plaque. Such displays provide valuable local history, unattainable from military records where names are categorised alphabetically or by military unit.

Public subscription and entertainment fundraising events amassed ?413.10.0 for the memorial, designed and produced by Toowoomba-based RC Ziegler and Son. The soldier statue was crafted and imported from Italy.

The WWI memorial stands in Hack Menkins Park, beside the main highway passing through Cooyar.
