Sandgate War Memorial Park

8 Seymour Street, Sandgate QLD 4017
Sandgate's war memorial resembles Lutyens' Cenotaph in Whitehall, the site of Remembrance Sunday ceremonies in London since 1919. Governor Sir Matthew Nathan unveiled Sandgate's 91 tonne granite and concrete memorial on 24 February 1924. Of the 330, mostly young, Sandgate men who went to war, 51 died. Australia-wide, about one in five of the 300,000 volunteer soldiers died in WWI. War memorials were a matter of local pride, indicating a district's patriotism and wealth. Sandgate Mayor WH Bowser not only presided over the memorial's organising committee which commissioned prominent Queensland architect George Gray Prentice to design the 850 monument, but also donated much of the granite from his Samford quarry. Charles Lowther, of the masonry firm Lowther and Sons that built the cenotaph within a small island of parkland, was a returned soldier: he'd served in the Light Horse in Palestine during WWI. The memorial bears a verse- They died, and yet in memory shall they live, That we may know the worth of sacrifice, Know that their death is freedom's cause, Stands as a beacon light to point the way, To paths of peace. Names of Sandgate residents killed in WWII, Malaya, Korea and Vietnam have been added....

Cross Country Tours

88 Hoskins Street, Sandgate QLD 4017
There's an old line, "We're here for a good time, not a long time!" and on a Cross Country tour, no matter how long or short, they take a long time to make sure you have a good time. Even a short time spent with Cross Country Tours illustrates the difference between destinations and experiences, as their staff members do much more than show you around Australia or the world. Their guides become your hosts, sharing their love of the people you'll meet and the places they'll take you. This is a time in life to explore Australia, not just drive around. If your interests run to vintage aircraft and steam trains, or national parks and wildlife, Cross Country Tours has holidays to make the best of your time on tour. After all, a large part of what you spend on your holiday is time, and a good holiday is time well spent with Cross Country Tours. ...
