Flagstone Creek: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Ma Ma Creek War Memorial


Fleurine Andrews' three sons died fighting in France in WWI. Their memory lives on in an unusual soldier statue in a small country cemetery, 13 kilometres south-west of Gatton.

Mrs Andrews commissioned monumental masons AL Petrie and Son to produce the memorial, erected in the St Stephen's Anglican Church cemetery at Ma Ma Creek in 1920.

The soldier statue, a popular choice of tribute in Queensland communities, embodies qualities of the ideal Australian: loyalty, youth, courage, innocence and masculinity. This one is a rarity, the only surviving 'Digger' wearing a cap instead of a slouch hat.

Private James Martin Andrews was killed on 5 August 1916, aged 26. Private George Henry Andrews died on 9 June 1917, aged 28. Private Bertie Reginald Andrews was killed on 10 June 1918, aged 20.

The war memorial stands behind the Andrews family plot and is the focus of public ANZAC Day memorial services.

Mrs Andrews also donated a church organ in her sons' memory.

Picnic Point Lookout And Parkland


Don't miss the panoramic views from Toowoomba's heritage-listed Picnic Point Lookout and Parkland - 160-acres perched high on the crest of the Great Dividing Range, overlooking Main Range and the Lockyer Valley. And if you've been before, visit again because no two days are the same!

Be greeted upon entry with an avenue of mature hoop pine (Auracaria cunnninghamii) and South Queensland kauri (Agathis robusta) before the parklands opens into manicured lawns. Pre-pack a picnic or use the free barbecues and find a quiet patch of grass under a bunya tree, or stop by the cafe and restaurant and take in the views over a coffee or a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner. It's the perfect spot for birdwatching, quiet contemplation or ticking off a bucket-list Toowoomba selfie.

The kids will love the playground and the weekend children's train, and for a little adventure you can set off on the escarpment walking trails to the nearby waterfall or take on the challenge of the Table Top Mountain walk.

The lower section of the park can also be accessed via Tobruk Memorial Drive and is another ideal location for impressive vistas, picnics or a barbecue.

Toowoomba Water Bird Habitat


Nestled into suburban Rangeville, Toowoomba Waterbird Habitat is a beautiful and diverse wetland spread over 7.6 hectares (19 acres). Environmental diversity is essential if the habitat is to attract a variety of waterbirds. Deep and shallow lakes, areas of reeds, mud-banks, islands and grassy areas provide feeding, roosting and nesting conditions for birds including Ibis, Dusky Moorhens, Black Cormorants, Plumed Whistling Ducks and Purple Swamp Hens.

More than 2000 shrubs and trees attract Sulphur Crested Cockatoos, Lorikeets, Rosellas, Kookaburras and other native birds. All of the plants are Australian species appropriate to the locality. Perimeter plantings help screen the habitat from the surrounding roads and houses, creating a peaceful atmosphere within.

Waterbird habitats are characteristically places of light and open spaces, so large areas of grassland have been retained. You can see birds such as Maned Wood Duck and Straw-necked Ibis which feed mainly on these grasslands.

Lake Annand Park


Set on two hectares, Lake Annand is a pleasant water attraction and well-used recreational space set along Toowoomba's East Creek.

A bikeway passes through the park and follows the route of East Creek right through to Queen's Park, close to the city centre.

Well maintained barbecue and playground facilities are another popular feature. You'll see a New Zealand influence in some of the plantings and park design - the lake features a pulsating fountain, reminiscent of the geysers; a simulated lava flow has been fashioned in one area of the park, and distinctive plants such as flax add to the theme.

Where there's an attractive expanse of water, there will be ducks, and Lake Annand is no exception. A boardwalk at the lake edge, and a handsome curved bridge give youngsters (and the young-at-heart) hours of pleasure enjoying the antics of these handsome birds, which paddle towards anyone who might throw them some bread.
