Situated five minutes north of Brisbane's city centre, the suburb of Windsor is steeped in the history of Brisbane.

As one of Brisbane's older suburbs, the landscape of Windsor is sprinkled with grand old homes, majestic Queenslanders, heritage-listed buildings and renovated workers cottages. Hilly parts of the suburb boast stunning city views, while the low-lying areas enjoy the calm tranquillity of Enoggera Creek.

The Windsor Historic Society is based in the former Council Chambers, a quaint old stone building, constructed in 1897 from stone carved out of the nearby Windsor quarry. The old building and quarry are now heritage-listed and you can visit them for a glimpse of this fascinating piece of Brisbane history. While you're in the area visit the Windsor War Memorial located near the Chambers building and admire the beautiful old stone cenotaph.

Attractive parkland and walkways are provided alongside beautiful Enoggera Creek. A relaxed stroll along the creek will take you to Downey Park containing playing fields, parkland as well as some remnant bushland. The Park also offers excellent city views and markets are held every Sunday morning.

You will find a wide variety of good restaurants in Windsor as well as take-away options and cafes. Accommodation options include four star hotels and motor-inns.

Windsor: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Windsor War Memorial Park

A red light from a bronze lantern beams out at night from a Helidon brown sandstone cenotaph, standing on a high point of a northern thoroughfare leading towards Brisbane's Central Business District.

The octagonal pavilion with its four arches and domed roof was unveiled on ANZAC Day 1925 on behalf of the citizens of Windsor to commemorate local residents who had served in WWI.

This dominating cenotaph, designed by honorary architects FR Hall and WA Devereux and constructed by Peter Frew, is rare among Queensland's WWI monuments because of its octagonal design. Yeronga's Memorial is closest in style in Brisbane.

External corner panels are inscribed with names of some 120 local war dead. Red and blue concrete borders a leaded marble commemorative plaque on the pavilion's floor. Moulded laurel wreath ornamentation encircle the ceiling.

The Windsor War Memorial stands on the site of the original school situated between Lutwyche Road and Roblane Street, Windsor-opposite the former Windsor Town Council Chambers.

Newstead House

Historic Newstead House is Brisbane's best-known heritage site open for public inspection, offering a number of unique experiences befitting Brisbane's oldest domestic dwelling. The building, dating from 1846, has evolved from a simple Colonial Georgian cottage into the quintessential homestead of today - a style of architecture that draws as its inspiration the bungalow found on the Indian sub-continent.

Newstead Park Memorials

Newstead Park, on Brisbane River, conceals many stories-including its part in WWI. A memorial trophy cannon unveiled near the rotunda in 1922 caused controversy: an alderman suggested it was an 'emblem of evil' and that the money would be better spent supporting returned servicemen. The cannon was removed in the 1950s, donated to the 9th Battalion-and made way for the Australian American Memorial, one of only two such memorials in Australia, attesting to Brisbane's importance in the Allied victory in the South-West Pacific.

The grounds of Newstead House, Brisbane's oldest surviving residence, also hosted fundraising efforts during WWI. A dolls' carnival in 1917 was a special drawcard, raising money to send 'comforts' to the troops in the trenches, specifically the 25th Battalion.

Newstead House was occupied by the US Army from 1942 through to the end of WWII. The grounds reflect the American occupation and hold memorials to the Australian Navy Corvettes, submariners and Vietnam veterans.
