Pratten: Where To Go / Sightseeing

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.

Clifton Historical Museum


The Clifton Historical Museum is a worthy tribute to the district's pioneering past. Housed in the old butter factory, you can take a step back in time and visit a 1930s dining room, a pioneer bedroom, an early hospital ward, kitchen and children's room.

The Heritage room allows access to original records of local businesses and schools. Read the memoirs of long-time residents, browse through the photographic collection, or look for your forebears on the database.

An extensive range of early agricultural tools and machinery will evoke memories of yesteryear.

Old movie memorabilia, communication, history, musical pieces; there's something for everyone, discover it for yourself.
