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.
