About Boer War Memorial and Park, Allora

While the soldier statue has become a symbol of remembrance in Australia relating to the world wars, the first of three soldier statues erected in Queensland after the Boer War (1899-1902) is found the War Memorial Park of Allora. 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. The memorials are situated in a public park in Warwick Street.
